Child Care in Denmark: Part I. Policies and Daytime Programs in Their Social Context.
Dubin-Snyder, Constance G.
This study offers a description of the daytime programs and facilities serving the preschool population in Denmark, with emphasis on the types of programs offered, their administrative organization, minimum standards, scope and cost, and supply and demand. The greatest detail is given to the "bornehave" and "bornehaveklasse" serving the 3-to 7-year-old population. These programs are seen in their historical perspective and contemporary context with regard to the Danish social responsibility and policies for child welfare. Educational philosophies behind the programs and the official goals for them are reported. Other institutions generally related to the early childhood education process (such as colleges for teacher training and further education, education libraries, research institutes, teacher centers) were investigated. The journals and organizations publishing materials relevant to child care are reviewed, and the nature and extent of Danish research in early childhood are reported. (Author/ED)
