Summary

The Child Care Action Campaign (CCAC) hosted an audioconference on December 8, 1997 to examine strategies to expand and improve family child care to meet the increased need for infant/toddler care and care during non-traditional hours. This issue brief summarizes the audioconference's presentations. Presenters were Julie Rogers, special projects coordinator at the Florida Children's Forum; Nancy Kolben, executive director of Child Care, Inc. in New York City; and JaNell Welker, co-chair of the Oregon Family Child Care Network, Oregon Commission on Children and Families. The discussion was moderated by Kathy Modigliani, director of the Family Child Care Project at Wheelock College. The presentations described activities and programs underway in each of the presenter's states. The issue brief then discusses, based on presenters' observations, obstacles to increasing supply and improving quality of child care. The brief concludes with discussion of eight policy considerations highlighted by Modigliani: (1) recruitment; (2) training; (3) mentorships and internships; (4) accreditation and CDA scholarships; (5) financial incentives; (6) family child care networks; (7) compensation; and (8) group homes.
