Summary

Elderly and working families with young children have been strongly affected by social changes, particularly in the areas of low-cost quality child care and meaningful opportunities for the elderly. The feasibility of an intergenerational program in which non-center-based, low-cost child care could be provided while expanding employment and experiential opportunities for the elderly was explored. Individuals (N=65) in the fields of child care, aging, and intergenerational programs in the San Francisco Bay Area were interviewed; additionally, 15 individuals participated in a problem-solving meeting. The information generated by interviews, reactions to the project, and the problem-solving session were evaluated. Analysis of the data revealed that a sufficient demand for child care services and a need for elderly employment expansion within the field of child care existed to merit the development of an intergenerational child care service program. Results indicated, however, that significant attitudinal issues needed to be addressed within the community before such a program could be successful. (Although geographically specific, this study could serve as a model for other communities considering intergenerational child care programs.) (NRB)
