0 Reviews
This study explores the relationship between parent values and the day care experience. It draws upon the day care literature and envelops this literature within the framework of human values. It employs open-ended interviews with both subsidized and non-subsidized day care parents as well as day care directors who have subsidized families in their programs. The book is organized into themes and investigates the issue of subsidizing day and care and how this relates to parental choice. Also explored are the issues of day care as a world of continuity or discontinuity, day care as an enriched or less than enriched world, and the relationship between day care and family life. The views of day care directors are also presented.
