Windows on Day Care. A Report on the Findings of Members of the National Council of Jewish Women on Day Care Needs and Services in Their Communities.
Keyserling, Mary Dublin
The findings of surveys conducted by members of 77 Sections of the National Council of Jewish Women as to existing day care needs and services in their communities are reported. Chapter I of the report presents The Plan of the Report and Highlights of Findings and Recommendations. Chapter II summarizes highlights of what is now known about the arrangements made by mothers who obtain day care services for their children. It also indicates the extent to which present child care facilities throughout the Country fail to meet existing and anticipated needs. The need for day care in the localities surveyed is presented in Chapter III. Chapters IV, V, and VI summarizes what survey participants saw when they visited proprietary and non-profit day care centers and day care homes. In Chapter VII, what Council members learned when they talked with mothers about day care needs and problems is reported. Chapter VIII offers illustrations of what Council Sections are doing in their communities to help expand and improve day care services. Chapter IX presents recommendations for action at the national, state, and local levels. The two appendixes are: 1. Sections Which Participated in the Windows on Day Care Project and Names of Day Care Committee Chairmen; and 2. Excerpts from Windows on Day Care Kit for Council Sections. (Author/DB)
