Child Care Project. Annual Report.
Broussard, Anne M.
The Child Care Coalition has been monitoring the number of high-quality, safe, accessible, and affordable child care spaces in Pasadena, California, since 1989. In addition, the Coalition has worked to expand the availability of child care through such programs as the Northwest Child Care Trust Fund Loan Program, which offers loans to child care providers at a 5% interest rate; the Stone Soup Project, an after-school program offered at four elementary schools; the Model Employer program, which focuses on issues including maternity and parental leave, subsidized child care, and parent education; and individual assistance. This collection of materials about child care in Pasadena includes: (1) an annual report covering Child Care Coalition activities in 1991 and a brief report on alternatives for voluntary contributions to child care; (2) a report by the Child Care Project entitled "Child Care Needs Assessment for the City of Pasadena," which documents shortfalls in available child care for infants/toddlers, preschool children, and school-age children; (3) "A Resolution of the Board of Directors of the City of Pasadena Setting Forth and Implementing the City's Child Care Policy"; (4) the City of Pasadena's Child Care Policy; and (5) information for loan applicants concerning Northwest Trust Fund child care loans, including a loan application.
