The Partnership Guide: Strategies for Supporting Family Day Care in Your Community.
Ward, Pat, Ed.
This document provides information from the National Family Day Care Project (NFDCP) for those interested in developing a family day care project in their community. The NFDCP was designed to provide examples of quality projects for community-based organizations to replicate. The project has also identified successful methods for designing, implementing, and institutionalizing these projects. The guide is organized into six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses the process of creating a family day care project and focuses on the assessment of community needs and the selection and institutionalization of a project. Chapter 2 concerns successful strategies for working with advisors and partners. Chapter 3 discusses issues to be considered in the selection of individuals and organizations as advisors and partners. Twelve steps in the evaluation process are considered in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 discusses the process of building relationships with funding organizations. The conclusion, in Chapter 6, summarizes the elements of a successful project and emphasizes partnerships and leadership as the keys to a project's success. Appendices include 11 references; a list of 29 case studies; a list of NFDCP publications; a list of the National Advisory Panel members; fact sheets about working with advisors and partners and about volunteer organizations; and a list of national resources.
