Adoption and Continuation of Family Day Care Support Services.
Deshler, J. David; And Others
This evaluative research report on the nature and extent of efforts to adopt and continue family day care support services in New York State is addressed to persons interested in developing an educational and support program for family day care and to policy makers. Findings are reported in 2 parts. Part I is a discussion of variables that tend to affect the adoption and continuation of family day care support services, including: the characteristics of such services, the extent of recognition of the need for particular innovations; the characteristics of those who implement programs; the manner and extent of the dissemination of models and program innovations; and the nature of major facilitating forces. Part II, a case study of adoption and continuation of the Family Day Care Pilot Programs in Nassau County, describes the program resources, the design and development of the advisory board, interorganizational relationships, the impact on providers, and prospects for continuation. Conclusions reached concerning the potential for adoption and continuation of family day care support services in New York State are listed. Copies of questionnaires used in the study are appended.
