Strategies To Improve Quality in Subsidized Child Care. CCAC Issue Brief #8.
Child Care Action Campaign Issue Brief, n8 Dec 1997
Recent state efforts reflect a growing commitment to building state child care systems, but increasing child care capacity while simultaneously designing and expanding good quality, new child care systems remains a challenge. On November 17, 1997, the Child Care Action Campaign (CCAC) conducted an audioconference that focused on how Wisconsin, North Carolina, and New Jersey are using federal and state funds and private funding to improve the quality of subsidized child care in both formal and informal settings. The presenters were David Edie, director of the Wisconsin Office of Child Care; Sue Russell, executive direction of Day Care Services Association and the TEACH Early Childhood Project; and Edna Ranck, child care coordinator and the New Jersey Department of Human Services. This issue brief summarizes information from the conference presentations, which addressed the following questions: (1) "How does your state define quality and what methods are being used to improve it?"; and (2) "Which of your successful strategies should other states consider?"
