Some Ingredient of Effective School-Age Child Care.
Rosen, Judith M.
This paper briefly discusses several factors in providing high quality day care for school-age children. It is argued that parents have the power to influence public policy regarding provision of school-age day care services through voting, and that there is much more community support of day care when it is perceived as a program to serve all families, not just the traditional low income families. Further, public support for housing day care programs in existing school buildings is high because it provides a good reason for not closing down neighborhood schools that have declining enrollments. It is important that day care be structured as a child development program and not as a custodial service. (Author/SS)
