Virginia State Dept. for Children, Richmond.; Virginia State Dept. of Social Services, Richmond.
The 1988 state plan for child day care covered in this document focuses on recommendations for a state office for child day care, increased funding for the child care subsidy program, and a pilot voucher system. The plan is based primarily on outcomes of the 1987 Governor's Conference, Child Care: Everybody's Business. The goals of the 1988 plan include: (1) advocating for, and aiding in the development of, a coordinated child care delivery system as proposed by conference recommendations; and (2) developing a legislative agenda to accompany the 1987 Governor's Conference recommendations. Plans for the state office, increased funding, and the pilot voucher system are discussed in detail. An update on recommendations is also provided. Appended are: (1) recommendations of previous conferences, reports, and plans; (2) legal issues and a regional map of resource and referral programs; (3) the results of a needs assessment survey of employees; and (4) profiles of 16 child day care voucher systems in 13 states. Over 50 references are cited. (RH)
