Employer Child Care Development Council Report to the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
Fairfax County Office for Children, VA.
This report discusses the goals, activities, and recommendations of the Employer Child Care Development Council. An increasing number of businesses in Fairfax county, Virginia are offering some type of child care service as an employee benefit. In January 1987, the Board of Supervisors established the Employer Child Care Development Council as a public and private partnership between government and business designed to help businesses develop child care assistance benefits for their employees. The council was also intended to provide an effective means of reaching decision makers in business and industry. The report describes activities and recommendations of the council in terms of these objectives: (1) to educate the business community regarding trends and options in employer-supported child care and provide technical assistance to businesses planning to use some of the options; (2) to maintain a high profile in the business community in order to promote increased employer participation in child care benefits; (3) to identify incentives and remove barriers in an effort to increase the development of child care centers in business settings; and (4) to advocate for child care in order to increase funding and availability of resources for employers, employees, and the general child care community.
