Day Care: Everybody's Problem.
Office of Child Development (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This document reports on statistics regarding the need for day care facilities for children under the age of six. It also gives suggestions for making better use of local day care resources. Statistics show that: (1) There are more than 5 million children in this country under the age of 6 whose mothers work; (2) There are licensed day care facilities for only 600,000 of these children; and (3) Approximately 1 million school-age children must care for themselves while their parents work. Steps which can help make quality care available for all of these children include: (1) coordination of local day care resources, (2) the building of a 4-C Program, i.e. a federally assisted Community Coordinated Child Care program, and (3) organizing and training volunteers in the community.
