Tustin : Policy, Programs for Child Care Urged

An ad hoc child-care committee has recommended that the city and the Tustin Unified School District work together to set a child-care policy and provide programs.

The committee’s report also recommended that the city expand its child-care directory and establish a child-care providers’ network for Tustin.

The committee concluded that child-care programs should be expanded for elementary school students, and that recreation and after-school programs should be added for youths in grades six through 12, particularly those in the city’s southwest neighborhood.

In preparing its report, the committee did an inventory of current programs and the people who use them.
