Employer Supported Child Care: An Idea Whose Time Has Come. A Conference on Child Care as an Employee Benefit (Costs and Benefits, Successful Programs, Company Options, Current Issues). Conference Proceedings.
Haiman, Peter, Ed.; Sud, Gian, Ed.
Many aspects of employer-sponsored child care programs--including key issues, costs and benefits, programmatic options, and implementation strategies--are discussed in these conference proceedings. Public policy issues, legal aspects of child care as an employee benefit, tax incentives for corporate child care, and funding sources for child care are discussed. A variety of program options, such as center-based care, 24-hour child care, care for the sick child, information and referral services, vendor/voucher programs, and family day care, are described. An overview of existing employer-supported child care programs is presented and four current company programs are described. Also reported are suggestions for a child care-related research committee, results of one company's needs assessment study, and data from a survey of employers in Santa Clara County, California, regarding child care employee benefits. Appendices provide a resource bibliography on employer-supported child care, sample conference displays, and a list of conference presenters and attendees. (Author/JA)
