Equality of Opportunity for Participation of Women in Higher Education through Child-Care Services.
Jelfo, Donald T.; Burger, Vernon K.
In an attempt to overcome one of the barriers to equality of opportunity for women in higher education, this practicum develops a child-care program model for the eastern campus of Cuyahoga Community College (CCC). The literature on college child-care programs is reviewed, along with federal, state, county, and city laws and guidelines. Colleges in the Cleveland area were surveyed, and six were found to have operational child-care programs. Interviews with the directors of these programs revealed that programs range from simple baby-sitting services to full educational and recreational programs, including daily lesson plans. Because of the expected patterns of student use and cost and space constraints, it is recommended that a child-care program of the baby-sitting type be established. A list of specific policy recommendations, covering such issues as hours of operation, staffing, costs, numbers of children to be served, and rules and regulations for use, is provided. Brief descriptions of child-care programs at other Cleveland area colleges are appended. (NHM)
