San Francisco Foundation, CA.; Zellerbach Family Fund, San Francisco, CA.
This handbook for child care centers that are expanding their support to parents of children in their programs begins by describing the Parent Services Project (PSP). The next section explains the many services available to parents and the variety of ways these services are provided at the PSP centers. Services include fun family events; parenting classes; adult-only activities; skills-building classes; peer group discussions; mental health services; alternative forms of child care, including sick-child care and respite; parent involvement; and services for newcomer families. Subsequent sections cover the topics of: (1) minimum requirements for the parent services coordinator, child care, and food or refreshments; (2) the cost of services and ways to lessen the cost; and (3) the impact of PSP in terms of savings to the state of California, long-term effects, and PSP's advocacy of California's proposed Parent Services Bill: AB 2413.
