Is day care harnful for young children? What type of day care is best? What is good quality care? How should day care relate to other services and other policies? The increasing demand for women in the labour market has given day care a high profile - in the media, amongst employers and in government. The new interest in day care raises many questions and issues; getting the answers right is essential if the needs of children and their parents are to be properly met. This book makes an important contribution to an informed debate, it presents the papers given at a major Conference in 1990, organized by the Department of Health and Thomas Coram Research Unit. The main objective was to look at the findings of day care research and their implications for policy. Researchers from the USA abd Sweden, as well as Britain, contribute to provide an international dimension, both on research and policy.
