Current Trends and Issues in Day Care in Canada.
Clifford, Howard
Major issues concerning day care in Canada are discussed: (1) Infant Care, (2) Family Day Care, (3) Emergency Care, (4) Pluralism, (5) Children's Needs, (6) Community Based Service, (7) Parent Choice, (8) Parent Involvement, and (9) Staff Qualifications or Staff Training. The issues are considered in relation to two day care approaches that are developing in present-day Canada. One approach, the satellite concept, focuses on one day care center which supervises a number of day care homes in the immediate vicinity. The second trend emphasizes the responsibility of parents in selecting and participating in their own day care service. Because day care is in its early developmental stages in Canada, government, social workers, industry, women's lib, and education each have their own reasons for promoting it. It was emphasized that in the final analysis the welfare and happiness of children should not be justified in order to augment and advance other segments or institutions in a society. (CS)
