The Hours We Can't Be Home: Developing a School Age Child Care Program. A Handbook for Parents.
Eller, Carole L.; And Others
This handbook suggests to parents ways to plan, develop, and implement an after school child care program. Following a description of the initial child care needs assessment in the community, guidance for deciding the appropriate program type and step-by-step administrative instructions for establishing the program as a business are given. The next section, on staffing, provides basic information for policy formation and hiring and training of staff. Next, daily program development is discussed in terms of planning, equipment and supplies. Budgeting and financial management concerns are then outlined, and public relations coverage is suggested. Finally, a list of possible areas for program evaluation is provided. Related materials for the Somerset, Connecticut, Elementary Child Care Association are appended, including by-laws, various record-keeping forms, the Connecticut Public Health Code Regulations for Day Care Centers and Homes, and the Connecticut Day Care Licensing Program forms.
