Models for Local Planning: Child Care Planning Case Studies.
Ontario Ministry of Community and Social Services, Toronto.
This document provides an overview of a survey of child care planning advisory groups in 14 cities that was conducted in December, 1991 and January, 1992. The survey sought to identify major issues related to community-based planning for child care services in Ontario, Canada. After discussing the background and history of child care planning, outlining the method for the study, and providing an overview of the results, the document presents a case study of each of the 14 planning groups. Many of the groups studied indicated that four major factors have contributed to a change in conditions surrounding child care planning. The factors are: (1) a socio-economic and political climate typified by scarce resources; (2) recognition of a need for provinces and communities to work together; (3) evidence of progress in the ability and willingness of child care and children's services groups to agree on priorities; and (4) the increasing importance of the child care issue in local political agendas. The report notes innovations that have come from the groups. (ME)
