Employer Supported Child Care: Investing in Human Resources. Executive Summary of the National Employer Supported Child Care Project.
Divine-Hawkins, Patricia; Collins, Raymond C.
Based on the experiences of 415 employers who had child care programs in 1982, this paper summarizes material presented in the major report of the National Employer Supported Child Care Project (NESCCP). Initiated in response to employers' growing interest in child care, the NESCCP aimed to assist businesses by: (1) describing existing employer-supported child care activities throughout the United States; and (2) developing materials to help employers determine whether child care might make sense for their organization and, if so, how to set up an appropriate program. The project was conducted between 1981 and 1983 by the Child Care Information Service of Pasadena, California. Sections of this executive summary focus on the context for employer-supported child care, benefits of child care for employers, characteristics of employers and their child care programs, tax advantages for employers who support child care, further steps for employers who may wish to become involved in child care, and employer-supported child care options. Four categories of options are described: flexible personnel policies, information programs, financial assistance, and direct services. (RH)
