Existing Day Care Legislation. Final Report: Part III.
Carlson, Rick J.
Existing legislation applicable to day care programs is examined to discern what the Federal role has been. An overview of existing Federal legislation is given, and legislation is then analyzed as to its effect on the five components of the day care delivery system. These components are: (1) a product--the kind of day care program, (2) providers of that product--administrators, operators, educators, etc.; (3) consumers of the product--parents and children; (4) a medium of exchange between the providers and the consumers--means of financing the programs; and (5) regulation of the product and the means of financing by the public--the quality of the product and the terms and conditions of exchange. An appendix includes descriptions of all relevant legislative enactments affecting day care programs. (For related documents, see PS 005 969-971, 973-983.) (AL)
