School's Out! Group Day Care for the School Age Child.
Prescott, Elizabeth; Milich, Cynthia
This report on group day care is designed to: (1) examine the kinds of group programs for school-age children which exist in Los Angeles County, (2) describe the conditions necessary for program operation, and (3) consider the issue of quality as it relates to community expansion of day care services for children of school age. The report is divided into two parts. The first part provides an overview of the range of services and programs and the community's role in facilitating and regulating centers. The type and variety of activities, social structure, adult participation, equipment, materials, and special characteristics of centers are examined. The second part of the report contains detailed case histories of various school-age day care models: (1) a publicly-sponsored children's center, (2) a publicly-sponsored welfare model, (3) a skills recreation model, (4) a program model in the black community, and (5) a small neighborhood center model. A bibliography of related references along with appendixes containing program forms and statistics conclude the report. (CS)
