Abstract:

This report evaluates the day care needs of Pennsylvania migrant families and the adequacy of current state and local resources and delivery system for meeting those needs. Data collection included a meeting with state program administrators; mail surveys of state, regional, and local agency administrators and staff, and of employers of migrant workers; on-site visits to migrant day care centers; and review of state financial records. The poverty of migrant families, the nature of their work, and the fact that many young children are non-English-speaking creates specialized day care needs. Due to inadequate data sources and agency differences in definitions, counts of migrant workers and their families in Pennsylvania were inconsistent and unreliable. However, estimates based on census figures and program counts suggest that there may be over 11,000 migrant children under age 13 in the state. In 1990-91, the Statewide Migrant Day Care Program provided services to 1,110 migrant children, of whom less than 300 received direct day care and the rest received health and referral services. In addition, the limited resources available for day care were unevenly distributed across the state. The delivery system for these limited resources, however, was more than adequate in terms of program and fiscal efficiency. This report includes data tables and recommendations to legislators and agency personnel. Appendix contains survey questionnaires, interview guide, organizational charts, and policy documents. (Sv).
