Facilities (Mar. 28, 2001 news release)

Indicators: Volume 1."
"High quality, accessible and affordable child care is a critical

the university community."
In March 2001, UC launched a new child care facilities initiative

service components of educational programs appropriate to the developmental
needs of young children, including staff development, parent involvement
and education, health and social services, community involvement,
