Written as a quick reference for busy persons interested in the legal issues in child care, this booklet in no way pretends to be a legal authority on the issues, but was designed to serve as a practical guide. Content is based on questions frequently asked in the summer of 1986 during the Legal Issues Seminars held by Child Development Designs, Inc., and attended by administrators, teachers, corporate employers, and parents. Discussion of children's issues focuses on high quality programs, records on children and families, right to privacy, medical care, custody, child abuse and neglect, and handicapped children. Organizational issues are discussed in terms of the organization of the day care center, insurance, contracts, liability, and licensing. Personnel issues explored concern interviewing, dismissal, wages, benefits, and contracts. (RH)
