Establishing a Family Day Care Agency: Training for Child Care Project.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
This booklet was designed to aid persons interested in the mechanics of starting a family day care agency by describing eight agencies currently operating in the South. A family day care agency is an organization which assumes responsibility for administering and operating several family day care homes. Generally, the agency is responsible for establishment of policy, recruitment, and screening of day care homes, and ongoing training and supervision. In most cases an agency is also responsible for recruitment of children, payment of caregivers, providing information and referral for parents seeking placement for their children, and furnishing social services to parents. The program descriptions in this booklet focus on the following program aspects: (1) history and development of the organization; (2) description of the ongoing operation; (3) role of the staff; (4) role of the family day care provider; (5) program accomplishments and (6) program concerns. Brief discussions of family day care licensing and family day care associations are also included in the introduction. (JMB)
