Child Care: '76 and Beyond: The Design and Management of Systems for Supplying Child Care and Supportive Child Development Services in the East Metropolitan Area.
Winget, W. Gary
This project describes the proposed design and management of systems for supplying child care and supportive services in the East Metropolitan Area of St. Paul, Minnesota, and addresses the general problem of the increased need and demand for formal child care services. The stated goal of the project is to assure child care services which are conducive to the optimal growth and development of all children needing such care. The attainment of this goal is seen as involving the development of dual service systems, one system supplying formal child care services and the other system supplying supportive child development services. Objectives for the child care service system are to be met in two phases: Phase I, establishing a child care service unit, involving essential public, private, employer, union, parent and professional interests, establishing baseline data for use in forecasting demand, and recommending the implementation of a tested system for supplying formal services to meet parent demands; and Phase II supplying the formal services needed and assisting other areas in replicating the system. Objectives of the supportive child development system are to identify the needs of parents, children, and caregivers, and to plan and secure funding for a system capable of supplying the comprehensive and consultative services required.
