The study reviewed the problems and perspectives of day care providers and consumers, as well as administering agency practices. In this precis, particular strengths and weaknesses in each of the states, projected cost estimates for upgrading services, and four alternate strategies for federal, state and local officials to improve the quality of day care are summarized. Three other volumes provide materials summarized in this precis. (Author/CS)
