Child Care at USC [University of Southern California]. A Study for Action.
This child care study for the University of Southern California provides a summary of laws and regulations governing the operation of child care programs. A budget of estimated yearly expenses suggests that a child care program could be totally self-supporting based on a monthly fee of $110 for each child in full-time care. Securing the necessary physical facilities presents the major problem. An interest survey resulted in the collection of 181 completed questionnaires. Parents who responded to the survey are USC staff or administrators, about one-third are students, some of whom also work at USC, and the remainder are faculty. Parents of 70 children aged 2-5 requested full-time child care, while more than 50 additional children need part-time care. Three-fourths of the parents stated that they are able to pay at least $80 per month for full-day care and about one-half are able to pay more than $100 per month. Suggested alternatives for child care at USC include: (1) a facility directly operated by the university, (2) a facility operated by a nonuniversity organization with university assistance, or (3) a completely independent child care facility established with some university encouragement.
