Proceedings from the Child Care Policy & Research Symposium (Kingston, Ontario, June 3, 1991). Occasional Paper No. 2.
Kyle, Irene, Ed.; And Others
This symposium brought together researchers, policymakers, advocates, and child care practitioners to consider information relevant to child care policy which was available from several disciplines and how it could be applied to developing child care policy. The symposium's goals were not only to stimulate discussion among researchers and policymakers and researchers from different disciplines but to underline the importance of conducting Canadian child care research and making it widely available. Seven papers are included in the proceedings: (1) "The Implications of Early Childhood Education and Psychological Research for Canadian Public Policy on Day Care" (Nina Howe and Ellen Jacobs); (2) "Economics and Child Care Policy" (Gordon Cleveland); (3) "A Sociological Perspective on Child Care Research" (Maureen Baker); (4) "School-Age Child Care: A Preliminary Report" (Ellen Jacobs and others); (5) "Talking to Children: The Effects of the Home and the Family Day Care Environment" (Hillel Goelman and Alan Pence); (6) "The Effect of Price on the Choice of Child Care Arrangements" (Gordon Cleveland and Douglas Hyatt); and (7) "Ideology, Social Policy, and Home-Based Child Care" (June Pollard). The papers are followed by comments by Kathleen Brophy and Ruth Rose. A copy of the symposium program is also included. (MDM)
