Establishing an In-House Information and Referral Service at a Corporate On-Site Child Care Center.
Ward-Cameron, Kathy
The manager of an on-site corporate child care center located at a medical center in the southeastern United States implemented an in-house information and referral service to assist parents attempting to locate appropriate temporary child care near their homes or work-sites. Medical center employees were given a detailed listing of all child care centers located within a five-mile radius of the hospital and the telephone numbers of two local child care resource and referral agencies from which they could obtain listings of family day care homes and child care centers near their homes. Additional information was provided to help parents select a setting that offered high quality care. Practicum evaluation data indicated that a high percentage of parents requesting assistance from the service found places in alternative child care settings. Related materials are appended, including survey forms. (RH)
