New Jersey State Child Care Advisory Council, Trenton.
The purposes of this report to the New Jersey Legislature are: (1) to provide a brief historical overview of the work of the New Jersey Child Care Advisory Council from 1984 to 1987; (2) to inform the legislature of the status of the council's recent activities; and (3) to make recommendations to the legislature for future action. The introduction and recapitulation of council activities from 1984 to 1987 are followed by a review of activities undertaken in 1988. The review also covers the council's comprehensive plan for the development of child care in the state, the Office of Child Care Development, implementation of welfare reform, school-age child care planning grants, the urban prekindergarten pilot program, a survey of child care needs of state employees, advocacy and public awareness activities, advisement activities, and child care legislation. The discussion of priorities and goals deals with fiscal and nonfiscal priorities for 1989 and 1990 and support for child care legislation. Appendices provide newspaper stories about programs and services and a list of council members. (RH)
