The intent of this study was to pinpoint issues which were considered to be important to employees who were in need of child care for their children. In addition, this researcher hoped to gain information regarding issues which had not been previously recognized. Ultimately, this information will be utilized by the Child Care Task Force for the purpose of defining the directions to be taken regarding child care services for the next five to ten year period.
