A review of public policies affecting the quality of early childhood services for low-income families by Joan Lombardi( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper provides a review of public policies affecting the quality of early childhood services for low-income families, focusing on the federally funded Head Start program, federally supported child care, and preschools operated with state education dollars. The characteristics of high quality programs are defined as including: basic health and safety protections; a sufficient number of staff for children; small group size; staff training and consistency; adequate staff salaries and benefits; and, for low income families, comprehensive services for children and their parents. The background and provisions for quality, program standards, monitoring and enforcement, fiscal policies, and training and technical assistance are discussed for Head Start; for the four major federal programs that provide direct assistance for child care: the Social Services Block Grant, the Family Support Act, the Child Care and Development Block Grant; and the "At-Risk" Child Care Program; and for state-funded preschool programs. The following principles are suggested to guide policy regarding quality across publicly funded early childhood programs: (1) all low-income children, regardless of the funding source for care, deserve the best quality of care; (2) all early childhood programs must address the comprehensive needs of children and families; (3) children must have continuity of care; (4) programs should be responsive to parents' schedules. Recommendations for improving the quality of early childhood services for low-income families concludes the report. Contains five references and one note. (Dr)

Getting and retaining child care assistance : how policy and practice influence parents' experiences by Gina C Adams( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines what factors, besides funding and eligibility, affect whether eligible low-income parents who know they can get a child care subsidy actually use one. Data come from subsidy agency administrators, child care experts and caseworkers, parents, and providers at 17 sites in 12 states in 1999 as part of a case study project. This report examines subsidy policies and practices that may affect the utilization patterns of eligible parents who want to apply for, or who already receive, subsidies. Results indicate that there are many subsidy policies and practices that make it difficult for low income eligible parents to access and retain the child care assistance they need in order to work. Eight chapters examine: (1) "How Parents Experience the Subsidy System: Overarching Administrative and Structural Factors"; (2) "Initial Access to the Child Care Subsidy System"; (3) "Retaining Assistance during the Recertification Process"; (4) "Retaining Child Care Assistance after Leaving Welfare"; (5) "Retaining Assistance through Changes in Employment Circumstances"; (6) "Retaining Subsidies during Changes in Child Care Providers"; (7) "The End of the Process: Termination from the Subsidy Program"; and (8) "Conclusions." Study data are appended. (Contains 33 references.) (Sm)
