Development of a Child Care Resource and Referral Agency in a Corporate Eastern Metropolitan Area.
Teitz-Hornyak, Kathleen A.
A practicum study was planned and implemented by a working mother for the purpose of developing a child care resource and referral agency in an eastern metropolitan area. The objective of the practicum was to increase the number of child care referrals available to working families by 10 percent over a 10-week period. Of the 110 surveys mailed to businesses in the area, 30 percent were returned. Child care facilities were visited in an effort to gather information about their characteristics. In addition, 600 licensed child care facilities were mailed surveys concerning general facility information, staff qualifications and training, space, and children's programming. Of the 600 facilities, only 27, or 4.50 percent, returned surveys. Implementation efforts resulted in the entry of only 45 of 600 child care facilities into a data base for child care resource and referrals. It was concluded that the low number of responses to the child care survey was responsible for the failure to meet the practicum objective. (RH)
