Planning and Implementing a Community Based Child Care Information and Referral Clearinghouse.
MacWright, Alicia Cox
To provide for the planning and implementation of a community based, university sponsored, child care information and referral clearinghouse, a doctoral practicum project was undertaken. The primary goal of the project was to provide parents with up-to-date information about the full range of child care and children's services available in Middlesex County, New Jersey. The procedure for start-up and service delivery consisted of: (1) identification of providers; (2) compilation of the data base; (3) outreach and publicity; (4) the referral process; and (5) referral follow-up and evaluation. In the data base on the service providers, names of providers were catalogued and filed under the categories of child care, medical care, and consultants. The Child Care Clearinghouse received 135 requests for referrals during its first six months of operation, 89% of which were for child care. Most requests concerned care for infants and preschoolers. Included are 9 pages of references, 10 appendixes, and 9 tables. (SKC)
