Online Modules:
To BUILD relationships with other professionals working with children and families may be one of the most effective ways to increase parenting options and resources. Building networks and partnerships that support children, parents, and families at local and state levels and sometimes at regional, national, or international levels will ultimately BUILD the field of parenting education. While many of these affiliations are informal in nature, membership in professional associations or organizations will provide critical linkages with others working toward similar goals.
Critical BUILD Practices
To BUILD, a parenting educator will:
  • Connect and partner with other family-supporting professionals to share resources, support community initiatives, and facilitate referrals between agencies and organizations. Design, develop, and participate in support services and support networks for children, parents, and families.

FLORIDA 1998 GPRA PERFORMANCE PLAN Smith-Lever 3d Food Safety and Quality Final 3-17-98 M. Tamplin Narrative Statement Scope and Severity of Issues/Problems A. Introduction . The nation's concern about the safety of its food supply has risen to new historic levels. This situation is fueled by the public's awareness of outbreaks of foodborne disease, emerging pathogens, better surveillance methods, a growing population of high-risk individuals, increased government regulations, new industry practices, and greater importation of foods from developing countries. Epidemiological data show that foodborne illness in the U.S. results annually in 6,000,000 to 12,000,000 infections, approximately 9,000 deaths and more than $5,000,000,000 dollars in social and medical costs. In addition, retrospective studies show that the majority of foodborne illness is caused by microbial contamination in homes and commercial eating establishments, with only 5% linked to processing environments. These issues provide ample justification for Extension to utilize research-based information to enhance knowledge and behavior of safe food handling, processing, and production methods. Public concern of foodborne disease . News media have raised food safety issues to a prominent place in most people's lives. On a typical day, it is not uncommon to see and hear reports of outbreaks of foodborne disease, or new government regulations, on television, radio, and in newspapers. In fact, the average consumer's attention to food safety issues sustains, in part, the commercial revenues of news agencies. In a circular fashion, such prominent attention to food safety issues drives litigation, increased government oversight, and further interest by the media. Therefore, there is a great need for cooperative Extension to provide the public with scientifically-based information that can create a desirable balance with media reports.

In 1991, The Center for Career Development in Early Care and Education at Wheelock College was founded to improve the quality of early care and education for children by creating a viable career development system for early childhood practitioners; and promote the definition of early care and education both as a professional field and as a field of study. Addressing the need for change in both policy and practice, The Center's technical assistance, training delivery, research, and information dissemination activities are designed to help states, local communities, and higher education institutions bring about systemic change to replace the currently fragmented training system with one which meets the needs of families, children, and the field.

Child Care and Development Programs
The Budget Act of 2003 appropriated $2.2 billion for the California Department of Education's (CDE), Child Development Programs in a mix of 53 percent state funds and 47 percent federal funds. This amount represents a 3.7 percent decrease from the previous year. Over 2,000 contracts are dispersed through approximately 850 public and private agencies statewide to support and provide services to more than 584,000 children.
General Child Care and Development
General child care and development programs are state and federally funded programs that use centers and family child care home networks operated or administered by either public or private agencies and local educational agencies. These agencies provide child development services for children from birth through 12 years of age and older children with exceptional needs. These programs provide an educational component that is developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate for the children served. The programs also provide meals and snacks to children, parent education, referrals to health and social services for families, and staff development opportunities to employees.

Michigan Child Care Futures Project
Description Michigan Child Care Futures Project recruits and trains child care providers to increase the supply of quality child care. The project training programs cover all providers of care, but the project is unique in its outreach to family child care providers, relatives providing care, and other non-regulated providers. Child care providers in all 83 Michigan counties benefit from the Futures Project, which is implemented by the 15 regional Community Coordinated Child Care (4-C) agencies. The 4-C agencies are similar to resource and referral agencies in other states. The 4-C association is the state level organization that supports the 4-C agencies and coordinates the Futures Project. Partners Regional and community partners of the Futures Project vary, but they generally include Michigan businesses and foundations, universities and community colleges, hospitals, school districts, and public health and mental health organizations. Each regional 4-C agency is a public-private partnership, because each receives state contracts for child care resource and referral services in addition to the community support. Examples of project partners are:

Does It Matter and Does It Need to be Improved?
(Full Report)
Deborah Lowe Vandell and Barbara Wolfe(
Institute for Research on Poverty
Child care has become the norm for young children in the United States. In 1995, 59 percent of children who were 5 years or younger were in nonparental care arrangements on a regular basis (Hofferth, Shauman, Henke, and West, 1998). This care typically began at early ages and lasted substantial hours: with 44 percent of infants under the age of 1 year were in nonparental care for an average of 31 hours a week. In the late preschool years, 84 percent of 4- to 5-year-olds were recorded as being in child care for an average of 28 hours per week. The use of nonparental care in the United States is expected to grow even further as welfare reform is fully implemented (Vandell, 1998). Handbook of Child Psychology . Lamb concluded, based on extant research, that:

C onference Schedule
There is a huge unmet need for sick child care. Each day more than 350,000 children younger than 14 years of age with both parents working are too sick to attend school or child care. Working mothers are absent from their jobs from 5 to 29 days per year caring for ill children. This costs employers between $2 and $12 billion annually. Obstacles exist that hamper the development of needed sick child care programs. There is an absence of providers largely due to lack of information, lack of licensing procedures for sick child care, difficulty getting insurance, and funding challenges. Providers, parents, child care professionals and employers need information about sick child care. Providers need an information clearinghouse and a referral network of other providers, organizations and resources that can help them. Parents and child care professionals need information on sick child care resources in their communities and on ways to promote the creation of new services. Employers need information on how their support of sick child care services can help reduce their absenteeism costs.
