Evaluation of Comprehensive Child Care, San Jose, California. Final Report.
Pacific Training and Technical Assistance Corp., Berkeley, CA.
This report is a comprehensive study and evaluation of a child care program (five day care service programs funded to serve 230 children) developed by the San Jose Model Cities Health and Social Service Task Force. Part I describes the framework of the evaluation; Part II consists of evaluations of each of the five programs; and Part III is a systemic overview. The evaluation design used was an adapted classical model for effective impact evaluation which starts with an identification of the goals and objectives of a program and then proceeds to determine the extent to which they are attained. A list of goals and criteria was prepared and used to evaluate the centers. Data were gathered through interviews, questionnaires and on-site observation. Detailed information on population to be served and eligibility, environmental standards, parent involvement, staffing, educational services offered, health and nutrition, social services, and administration and coordination is presented for each program and recommendations for change or improvement are made.
