A Guide to the California Child Care Initiative: Increasing the Supply and Quality of Child Care through Public-Private Partnerships.
Bellm, Dan; And Others
This guidebook discusses the California Child Care Initiative (CCCI), adopted by the state legislature in 1985 to address the shortage of licensed, quality child care in California. Funded by a public-private partnership of 33 organizations, the CCCI was designed to recruit, train, and support new family day care providers in communities throughout the state. Parts 1 and 2 of the guidebook introduce the CCCI and discuss the role of child care resource and referral agencies in implementing the plan. Parts 3 and 4 review program planning and recruitment procedures that resource and referral agencies can utilize, while parts 5 and 6 provide information about start-up technical assistance and training. Part 7 discusses family day care turnover. Part 8 contains 12 appendixes, which provide copies of: (1) CCCI replication readiness checklist; (2) CCCI project planning checklist; (3) CCCI program summary and funder list; (4) CCCI publications list; (5) CCCI poster; (6) CCCI training certificate; (7) CCCI list of funded resource and referral agencies; (8) CCCI family day care recruitment and training statistics; (9) California Assembly Bill 811; (10) CCCI data collection, report, and survey forms; (11) a list of national child care organizations; and (12) a list of child care magazines.
