The Minnesota Child Care System (Featuring The Child Caring Reportcard). The 1988 Annual Report.
The 1988 edition of this annual report aims to provide the most complete information available about the formal Minnesota child care system. It is intended to help all those interested in child care to better understand the common base of information about the state's child care system. Provided are data about: (1) the rising number of children under 12 needing child care; (2) the current financial assistance programs available to help the working poor pay for child care; (3) the supply of licensed child care; (4) the cost of child care and the wages of child care workers; and (5) the sources and amounts of county, state, and federal funds spent on child care. The report uses the Child Caring Reportcard to compare the workings of the child care system in each county. Counties are ranked on nine indicators that measure the quality and diversity of child care, and the extent to which child care services are accessible to children regardless of income. While complete statistics are not available, the report contains all information that is available on each county. Appendix A offers recommendations to various agencies concerning the collection of much of the missing information. Seven additional appendices provide information about accredited and employer-sponsored child care centers and statistical data by county. (RH)
