This document provides information designed to help businesses increase their involvement in supporting children and families. The first of three chapters discusses the impact of social changes on the work force, and lists benefits that accrue to businesses and families when businesses institute policies that support employees' families. The second chapter describes options for the business community in providing child care services and arranging flexible work schedules for their employees. This chapter also lists activities by which businesses can facilitate parent involvement in early childhood education and offers eight suggestions for improving businesses' support of families. Successful efforts that exemplify business support of families are highlighted in both of these chapters. Finally, resource organizations or publications relating to child care are listed in the third chapter. Appendices include a survey form designed for a particular child care center, a questionnaire on dependent child care, a survey to gauge the degree of employees' involvement in their children's education and in meeting the needs of their families, and a sample company credo. A 36-item bibliography is provided. (BC)
