Child Care in 1976: Goals and Reflections.
Provence, Sally
Goals for future child care services are discussed in this address. It is stressed that social service agencies should consider the family as a unit in providing flexible child care services. Other goals include: (1) tailoring child care programs to parent development as well as child development, (2) insuring that child care workers are motivated to provide family support, (3) resolving the dilemma of the working mother and her commitment to the maximum development of her child, (4) incorporating volunteer effort more effectively in social services delivery, (5) developing parent education and family life education programs, and (6) developing broadly adaptable guidelines for social service programs instead of "exportable blueprints" (detailed program plans) to meet the needs of diverse communities. The caregiving abilities of parents and child care workers are discussed with reference to the psychosocial theories of Erik Erikson. (BRT)
