Abstract

The Community Child Care Movement of the early 1970's arose partly out of the ferment around women's liberation and partly from a recognition that community services for families with young children had not kept pace with rapidly changing social patterns. When it was first formed Community Child Care was one of the most out-spoken groups to point out: • that there is an unrealistic reliance on a social unit (the family) whose function and potency has undergoing dramatic changes; • that there was an inadequate provision of community services for families with young children and that some of the existing services were inappropriate; • that there were changes in the nature of the family and an increasing participation of married women in the work force; • that traditionally there had been an emphasis on economic necessity being the main reason for the provision of day care services; • that the lot of the woman at home with young children was increasingly becoming inhuman and intolerable.
