Employers and Child Care: Establishing Services Through the Workplace. Pamphlet 23.
Perry, Kathryn Senn; Moore, Gary T.
Guidelines for planning child care services and information about employer-related child care services are presented as an aid to employers, union leaders, and employee groups. Guidelines are provided for (1) planning child care involvement (setting up a task force, doing a needs assessment and a cost analysis, and choosing from the various forms of child care involvement); (2) funding (identifying the tax and liability features of specific program approaches, and investigating union and outside sources of funding); (3) operating a program (administering, licensing, developing the philosophy and curriculum, and staffing); and (4) establishing a child care facility (determining the location and type of facility, deciding on the architectural design, and choosing flexible furnishings and equipment). Bibliographic references are included for each guideline section. In addition, current government support for child care services is identified. Results of a 1978 survey, revealing the number and characteristics of employer-sponsored and union-sponsored centers in the United States and the benefits reported by employers and employees, are reported. Appended are listings of child care centers sponsored by industry, labor unions, government agencies, and hospitals. (Author/JA)
