46. Find Child Care For Non-Traditional Work Schedules - Child Care Aware
networks of family child care homes may be formed. The Daily Parent is prepared by the National Association of child care Resource and Referral Agencies

The Daily Parent Home

Today's job market requires many employees to work shifts that start or end after most child care programs open or close. More and more businesses operate around the clock. Many companies work in shifts which means employees work in the early mornings, evenings, nights, rotating schedules, weekends, holidays or extended hours. These non-traditional schedules affect the lives of millions of families. Hospital employees are but one example of working parents who work unusual hours and face special difficulties in finding child care or family support. From hotel staff to police officers to retail workers to factory employees whose services are needed beyond the typical work day, finding child care to match non-traditional schedules can be tough.
Child Care Choices Changing schedules and unusual hours in a job are serious issues for many working parents. There are currently few child care programs for those families that need care during non-traditional hours. Most child care centers and providers operate Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Parents need child care during their working hours, whenever they may be. The search for child care can be difficult and the choices few. For some parents, the solution to child care is to work alternate shifts. You may work the night shift while your spouse or partner works the day. Often these arrangements require your relatives or friends to fill in the gaps and overlap of work hours as well as the times when the schedule begins to fall apart. This leaves little time for parents or the entire family to have together. It's a tight schedule.

Healthy Child Care Illinois (HCCI) is a statewide program, modeled after the Healthy Child Care America (HCCA) campaign. The model strives to improve the health and safety of child care by linking child care to health care. Child Care Nurse Consultants (CCNCs) are employed to link child care to health care services. The department's Bureau of Child Care and Development, local health departments, and the Illinois Network of Child Care Resource and Referral Agencies (INCCRRA), assist in delivering the program services.
Program Goals
The Healthy Child Care Illinois initiative was launched on the principle of the Healthy Child Care America campaign that families, in partnership with child care and health care providers, can promote the positive development of children in child care settings.

THIS DIGEST WAS CREATED BY ERIC, THE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES INFORMATION CENTER. FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT ERIC, CONTACT ACCESS ERIC 1-800-LET-ERIC Although nearly 25 percent of U.S. children grow up in non-metropolitan areas, we have done little research on them. This oversight extends to rural child care, which receives little explicit analysis. As a result, "Our research on child care is an essentially urban literature, with a few examples of suburban studies. Rural child care is an unknown quantity" (Phillips, 1987, p. 123).
Center-based care. Rural families experience child care differently from urban ones on a number of counts. Center-based care, increasingly popular among American families, is less available to rural children. In many areas, lengthy distances, small and scattered populations and high transportation costs make centers impractical. Further, rural parents are more likely to prefer informal careespecially care provided by relatives (Shoffner, 1986). Consequently, only about one fourth of rural children are in group care ("Nonmetro and metro children," 1992, p. 27). Additionally, the centers that do exist in rural areas are often subsidized, and thus targeted at special populations, leaving working-poor and middle-class families with fewer choices.

How do elementary school children spend their time school? What kinds of after-school experiences help elementary school children to learn and grow and feel good about themselves? The Boston After-School Experiences Study (BASES) was funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to study the after-school experiences of boys and girls from different backgrounds, and to learn more about the impact of these experiences on the development of children. The model that guides BASES considers child development within the context of the social ecology of the after-school experience, the family, and the community.

Department of Family and Child Development Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University Blacksburg, Virginia Method Thirty-six family child care providers from northern Virginia were recruited by Extension Home Economists to participate in a child care provider training program. Demographic information about the providers' educational levels, number of years experience as a family child care provider, total years of formal education, extent of child care training, licensure status, and membership in professional associations was collected. Special efforts were made to locate family child care providers who were also members of professional or support organizations. Professional affiliation was defined as membership in a local affiliate of a nationally recognized child care and development organization or as membership in a locally organized family child care association that was part of a state organizational structure. Family child care providers were paired with University Extension educators, each working with two to four providers. The Extension educator and the provider agreed to a training schedule and method of learning. Then over a three-month period, training was conducted. Some providers were involved exclusively in self-study readings with optional access to videotapes and audiotapes. Other providers received home visits benefitting from conversations with the trainer, resource materials that were delivered and discussed, and subtle demonstrations of appropriate adult-child interactions by the trainer with the children in care.

Impact on Communities To impact the lives of children and their families, Success By 6 implements multiple strategies: improving access to services, influencing public policies and funding and building awareness of early childhood issues. In each of these strategies, the initial indicators of success are usually changes brought about in formal systems of community services and supports (health care systems, child care systems, education systems, etc.) and informal networks (neighborhood supports, parent groups, etc.).
The achievement of targeted child and parent outcomes is organized around four general Success By 6 strategy areas:
Early Care and Education
Improving the quality of early care and education in their communities is the focus of 31 of the 73 Success By 6 grantees implementing their plans. Most of these efforts are encouraging child care facilities to attain national accreditation through the National Association of the Education of Young Children or other national accreditation associations. They also are encouraging providers to increase their level of professional development through trainings, degrees or certifications. Family home providers were also encouraged to seek national accreditation through the National Association of Family Child Care.
The quality of child care is also being addressed by many states that are developing quality ratings for child care facilities. Many of these levels or tiers are associated with financial incentives to reach accreditation or the highest level of quality. Success By 6 ultimately aims for child care centers to be accredited and many initiatives have experienced impressive progress toward those goals. In addition, Success By 6 initiatives focusing on early care and education have also addressed educational results and new funding; family child care; kith and kin or relative care; and non-traditional partners.

Program Purpose
The Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency Program (ROSS) links public housing residents with supportive services, resident empowerment activities, and assistance in becoming economically self-sufficient. This program is consistent with the Department's goal to more effectively focus resources on welfare-to-work and independent living for the elderly and persons with disabilities. As a response to the Quality Housing and Work Responsibility Act of 1998 (the Public Housing Reform Act), ROSS is a redefined and restructured combination of programs funded in prior years: Tenant Opportunities Program (TOP), Economic Development and Supportive Services Program (EDSS), and Public Housing Service Coordinators.
