Child Care Data and Services.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Finance.
A publication releasing the most important current statistics, reports, statutory language, and regulations on child care is presented. Data are presented under the following general topics: (1) Child Care Services and Working Mothers, (2) Child Care Arrangements of Working Mothers Today, (3) Federal Assistance for Child Care, (4) How Much Does Child Care Cost?, and (5) Barriers to Expansion of Child Care. Salient factors brought out in this report include: (1) Number of children greatly influences mother's choice of child care arrangement; (2) Most Federal support for the cost of child care provided children of working mothers comes from programs authorized under the Social Security Act; (3) For full-day care in a child care center, the cost per child ranges from $1,245 to $2,320; and (4) Lack of funds and staff shortages hinder the expansion of child care. The statistical data are presented in 37 tables. Nine appendixes contain excerpts from publications, reports, and legislation, as well as Standards and Costs for Day Care, and Federal Interagency Day Care Requirements. (CK)
