New Jersey Employers and Childcare: Through the 1990's Together [Materials Related to a Conference] (October 16, 1989).
New Jersey Task Force on Employer Supported Child Care, Princeton.
On October 16, 1989, a statewide conference was held in New Jersey to assist in increasing the supply of employer supported, affordable, high quality child care in the state through a working partnership with the public, private, voluntary, and business sectors of the community. One of the conference objectives was to provide employers with information indicating the need for and benefits of providing child care assistance to their employees. Other objectives were to develop blueprints for employer action, highlighting existing experience with different options available to novice and more experienced employers, and to establish a forum to present and network resources of the New Jersey Task Force on Employer Supported Child Care. Substantive materials in this conference report include: (1) a brochure, "Child Care: A Challenge to New Jersey Employers"; (2) very brief summaries of 11 workshops; (3) information resources for employers, including statistics on child care in the state, information guides on current options and trends in employer-supported child care, and examples of employer involvement in child care assistance; (4) a selected bibliography on employer-supported child care with 14 annotated citations; (5) general information on family day care, school-age child care, and guidelines for parents on speaking with employers about child care assistance; and (6) articles discussing benefits accruing to businesses that provide child care services.
