Spring Hill Center, Wayzata, MN.
This conference report summarizes 12 presentations, small and large group discussions, conclusions, and policy suggestions.

Sponsored by Spring Hill Center (an independent nonprofit conference organization), the conference featured five major sessions which addressed the following topics: (1) the demand for services for preschool children, (2) background and status of the issue, (3) cooperative programs in action, (4) political consideration, and (5) network building.
