Implications of Japan's Center-Based Night Care: A 1-Year Follow-up
Anme, Tokie; Segal, Uma A.
Early Childhood Education Journal, v35 n3 p293-299 Dec 2007
With increasing numbers of women joining the evening/nighttime workforce, there is a need for quality childcare during these hours. This project, conducted in Japan, sought to compare the effects of expanded childcare on the development and adaptation of 866 young children after one year. Parents completed a survey on the childrearing environment at home, their feelings of self-efficacy, and the presence of support for childcare. Childcare professionals evaluated the development of children. The results of the multiple regression analysis indicate that factors in the home environment, not type of centerbased care, explained developmental risks one year later.
