Status of Day Care in Canada, 1983: A Review of the Major Findings of the National Day Care Study, 1983. = Situation de la garde de jour au Canada, 1983: Revue des principales conclusions de l'etude nationale sur la garde de jour en 1983.

The major purpose of the Status of Day Care in Canada reports is to gather information from the provinces concerning day care spaces in order to determine the growth of day care from year to year. In addition to reporting the increase in the availability of day care services from 1973 to 1983, this report provides data on the ages of children registered in day care centers versus family day care homes. Day care centers, as opposed to family day care offered in private homes, may have public, non-profit, or commercial sponsorship. Also reported are data providing interprovincial comparisons of day care spaces: (1) by age of children served; and (2) by auspices. Concluding tables present four separate compilations estimating the percentage of children that can be served by existing day care spaces. These compilations present information for children under the age of 2, for children from 2 to 6, and for children 6 years of age and over. The four groups of parents included in the compilations are mothers in the labor force; full-time working parents; full-time working parents plus students; and full-time working parents, students, and parents working 20 to 29 hours a week.
