Sanders, Wendy Hinrichs
The Wisconsin Child Care Improvement Project's (WCCIP) community-based approach to building child care capacity is described in this document. The WCCIP assists Wisconsin communities in their efforts to increase the availability and accessibility of quality child care. The work provides a rationale and identifies needed resources and information. Also discussed are the topics of: (1) needs assessment; (2) approaches to obtaining community involvement; (3) planning as a process; (4) implementation of capacity-building strategies; and (5) program evaluation. Seventeen appendices provide related materials, including sample forms, information sheets, a job description, a list of resource organizations, and a press release.
