A Profile of Federally Supported Day Care in Alaska.
Unco, Inc., Washington, DC.
This profile describes the characteristics of day care providers and of federally supported day care settings in Alaska. The report evaluates the quality of child care services and the impact of the Federal Interagency Day Care Requirements (FIDCR) both from the perspective of the state and local agencies which must administer federal day care dollars and from the perspective of day care operators who must meet federal standards. Statistics are provided on the three major types of licensed or certified day care settings which receive federal funds in Alaska: Day Care Centers, Family and Group Day Care Homes, and In-Home Care settings. The Alaska day care services profile provides data on: (1) the characteristics of children served by day care, (2) the day care services offered (health and psychological social services, transportation), (3) a description of day care providers (previous education, training, work experience), (4) providers' working conditions (staff/child ratios, training opportunities, working hours and benefits), and (5) parent involvement. It is hoped that this data will provide a baseline for upgrading services in Alaska. A total of 33 tables and charts supplements the text. (CS)
