    Alternative child care assistance helps parents care for children (99/07/26)
    NB 986 July 26, 1999 EDITOR'S NOTE - The following feature article on alternative child care assistance was prepared by the Department of Human Resources Development-NB. MEDIA CONTACT: Hugues Beaulieu, 506-453-2712. FREDERICTON (CNB) - For the past five years, parents with modest incomes in New Brunswick have had access to the Day Care Assistance Program offered by Human Resources Development-NB. This program provides financial assistance to help parents access quality, affordable child-care at an approved day care facility. However, not all parents have access to licensed day care: some parents live too far away from a centre, others work evening or weekend shifts. That is why Human Resources Development-NB created the Alternative Child Care Assistance Program. This program offers financial assistance for eligible parents who do not have access to a licensed day care and have to rely on babysitter services. These services must be provided by people outside the immediate family. The objective of the program is to help parents keep their jobs or continue going to school by providing them with financial assistance for unlicensed child-care. Dorothy Bateman's circumstances clearly demonstrate the importance of this new program. Bateman lives in Geary, near Fredericton. She is a single mother and works in a local restaurant. Her workday usually begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 7:30 p.m. "I used to send my children to a licensed day care because then I could receive government assistance," Bateman said. "But there was a big drawback. In the middle of working, I would have to make sure my two kids got to the babysitter's after the day care closed. That was quite an inconvenience. And using two child-care services was very expensive. Alternative Child Care Assistance solved my problems." This new program enables Dorothy to leave her children with a babysitter and to continue to receive the same amount of financial assistance.

    Child Care Co-ops With women entering the American work force in ever increasing numbers, locating high quality child care has become a serious problem for many families. The pressing need for child care facilities has prompted parents, educators, employers and communities to create new structures and methods for the development of child care programs. Increasingly, parents and employers alike are finding that professionally operated child care cooperatives best meet their expanding child care needs.
    Meeting a Variety of Child Care Needs Cooperatively The cooperative structure gives parents a voice in the operation of the child care program. As co-owners of the cooperative, parents must be well-informed and actively involved in their child's care. Parental participation goes beyond policymaking and might include sharing special activities or hobbies with children at the center. Parents work closely with a professional staff to ensure that their children receive care and education of the highest quality. The cooperative preschool movement has flourished in the United States for many years. As more and more women enter the work force, cooperatives are emerging to meet the need for infant care, before and after school care and full day care. The strength of the cooperative structure lies in its flexibility to satisfy the child care needs of both employers and parents. The child care cooperative may be structured in several ways:

    It is precisely this promise of "true understanding" that is attracting more and more child care providers to the Baby Signs idea. Caregivers from all over the country are attending our Baby Signs workshops, taking advantage of our instructional aids for the classroom, and proudly reporting their successes.
    The Benefits of Baby Signs in Child Care Settings
    Some of the benefits we've seen in the classroom mirror those reported by parents at home - decreased frustration, less crying, more positive interactions, faster development of speech. Others, however, are unique to the child care environment where children interact with each other as well as with adults:
    • Baby Signs Motivates Caregivers to Watch Babies Closely Baby Signs Provides Children with Constructive Ways to Interact With Each Other Baby Signs Promotes Active Learning Baby Signs Provides a Focus for Parent-Staff Teamwork Baby Signs Bridges the Gap Between Languages

    If you are looking for home-based child care, here are some important ponits to consider:
  • Does the home have a relaxed, happy feel to it? Would you feel comfortable spending time there? Would the child care provider be someone that you would choose as a friend? Do the other children seem to trust and love the child care provider? Does the child care provider take your child on field trips? If so, does she/he have a car seat or seat belt for each child? Would you feel comfortable and proud to introduce the child care provider to your mother-in-law as the "third parent" of her grandchild? Does the child care provider seem to know what is normal behavior for your child's age? Does the child care provider's spouse interact with the children? If so, meet him/her. What is the cost of child care? Are there written policies and procedures? Does the child care provider seem organized, bright, confident, proud of what she/he does? Do you think she/he enjoys doing child care?

    Child Care Works
    Child Care Works is Pennsylvania's plan for improving the quality and increasing the availability of safe, affordable child care for Pennsylvania's working families.
      Child Care Works helps eligible low-income families pay their child care costs by providing child care subsidies. These subsidy payments are usually paid directly to child care providers who are enrolled in the program. Most families eligible for subsidized child care pay between just $5 and $25 each week for their child care regardless of the number of children who receive care. The state pays the rest, usually about $75 to $95 a week. (While families with higher incomes may pay more than $25 per week.) Working families with incomes that are at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines (FPIG) up to $36,200 annually for a family of four could qualify for a subsidy. Families can remain in the program until their income reaches 235 percent of the FPIG, or $42,555 for a family of four.
