Helping Working Parents: Child Care Options for Business.
North Carolina State Dept. of Administration, Raleigh.; North Carolina Governor's Office, Raleigh.
Seven models representing the existing range of options of employer involvement in day care are described in this paper. The range of options are grouped into two categories: (1) company owned, operated, or subsidized child day care; and (2) employee assistance services, benefits, and policies. The models included in the first category are the company-owned on-site model, the off-site consortium model, the vendor program, and the voucher program. Included in the second category are the referral, the matching parents with providers model, and the sick child care model, as well as a number of personnel policies that are sensitive to the needs of working parents. The paper concludes with a list of existing employer-sponsored day care settings, an outline of the benefits and problems associated with employer-sponsored day care, and a brief indication of the federal and state tax incentives to those employers sponsoring day care programs.
