Status of Day Care in Canada: A Review of the Major Findings of the National Day Care Study, 1974. (Situation De La Garde De Jour Au Canada: Une Revue des Principales Constatations Sur La Garde De Jour, 1974).
Department of National Health and Welfare, Ottawa (Ontario).
This booklet presents (in both French and English) the results of a 1974 survey which assessed the growth of day care services in Canada. Similar national surveys had been conducted in 1971 and 1973. Results indicated that the number of day care spaces and the number of children of working mothers in day care increased substantially from 1973 to 1974. A trend toward non-profit day care centers (e.g., parent cooperatives, community-run centers, etc.), noted in the 1973 survey, continued in 1974. A continuing trend towards parent cooperatives and community-based day care centers and continuing growth of day care services are predicted. Data tables are included. (BRT)
