Alabama Day-Care Needs and Day-Care Resources. Final Report.
UEC, Inc., Washington, DC.
This research was conducted to provide a background for writing a plan for a state-wide day-care system. The findings of the study are presented. Existing statistical resources in Alabama and the 1970 federal census data were used in preparing this report. In addition, empirical data was gathered throughout Alabama to project the state-wide need for day-care. The Status and Needs Study is divided into two parts: (1) a descriptive profile of existing licensed day-care services, and (2) an analysis of the distribution of children in these day-care services. Where possible, the profile of day-care services is presented in terms of sponsorship and type of service. The unit of analysis is a county; however, these units can easily be collapsed into larger planning areas such as Economic Development Districts. The 392 licensed day-care centers in the State of Alabama which were reviewed are presently serving 14,392 children. The next four sections deal only with the children served by the licensed centers. Subsequent sections incorporate data on children served by family day-care homes, in-home care, group day-care contracts, and Head Start Programs. In addition, one section reviews several important day-care projects that await approval in Washington. (Two pages of text are of marginal legibility.) (Author/CK)
