National Survey of Family Day Care Regulations: Summary of Findings.
Adams, Diane
Summarized in this paper are findings from a nationwide survey regarding the status of family day care regulations. During the months of February and March of 1982, data were obtained from all 50 United States and from the territories of the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia, and Guam. Findings are briefly reported in terms of number of children in regulated/licensed child care facilities (capacity), number of full- and part-day centers, number of regulated day care homes (licensed, registered, and approved/certified), the costs of regulation, purchasing day care for subsidized families, child care food programs, reasons for following regulatory laws, enforcement of family day care regulations, the role of regulations in improving the quality of care, and policy options for regulating family day care homes. A table indicating family day care regulations and number of family day care providers by state completes the document. (MP)
