Evaluation of Pilot Programs for Children. Final Report.
Butler, Jacqueline; And Others
This is the final report of the Evaluation of Pilot Programs for Children (EPPC), a project to evaluate the progress of five communities in Tennessee which received demonstration funds from OCD to develop a Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C) program over a 3-year period (1971-1974). The 4-C is a system under which local public and private agencies interested in day care and preschool programs develop procedures for cooperating with one another on program services, staff development, and administrative activities. Sections of the report deal with: (1) relevant background information regarding 4-C programs in general (history, objectives, and relevant literature); (2) background information on each of the five communities (conditions, history, operational models); (3) a summary of goals, processes, and accomplishments of each 4-C, including staffing, funding, activities, and status at termination of OCD funding; (4) evaluation of the five programs in terms of a set of six core evaluation questions derived from national 4-C objectives and literature reviewed, including a detailed discussion and evaluation design and data collection instruments; and (5) EPPC recommendations, based on the experiences of the five communities, data collected, and literature reviewed.
