Summary

This report discusses federal government support of day care services. Two alternatives are presented: (1) services designed, regulated and funded by a central agency, and (2) services provided through a free market industry in which decisions about regulations and care would be made by consumers, with only minimal central regulation. The market system is discussed at length and recommended because it provides maximum freedom of choice by parents, and enables the day care industry to evolve according to the needs of the children and parents it serves. Further recommendations include a key resources program (planning, technical assistance, start-up costs, facilities, etc.) to be implemented to help the market meet new demand without artificially raising prices and to insure entry into the day care market of a variety of providers. Legislation guidelines are presented: (1) a voucher system giving parents purchasing power for day care services to accompany the key resource program, and (2) a national research program in child development.
