Abstract

The purpose of this practicum is to demonstrate the need and appropriateness of agency based group day care programs for children ages 0 -3 years, to indicate some guidelines based on a collation of recent, but partial and not -fully developed studies consistent with the aim of maximizing the socialized development of each child, with certain desired characteristics in mind as end products. Daycare needs have been studied from several approaches: on a city, state and national level describing the need in terms of "slots" to fill, and from a neighborhood based approach where needs are being met by neighbors in "natural" arrangements. These approaches, however, do not fully take into consideration the role that public attitude has taken in making day care what it is today - a social problem.
