Summary

Parents' preferences for day care services are compared with the major types of existing day care. Survey data on the types of services parents prefer is first summarized. Then the major types of available day care are described. Finally, each type of care is evaluated on the basis of available data concerning parents' satisfaction with and preference for each type of care as a whole, as well as their attitudes toward individual features of each type of care. The purpose of this evaluation is to provide the federal government with some of the information needed to select and design the delivery system that will expand the nation's supply of day care. Existing data on parents' preferences is not adequate in all areas to be considered. More research into differences in preference among population groups and into the details of those preferences would seem necessary in order to tailor the expanded day care services to individual communities and thus, to assure maximum use nationwide. Three appendixes and a reference list accompany this report. (For related documents, see PS 005 969-976, 978-983.) (Author/AL)
