Abstract

Recent studies have proclaimed the state of child care in the United States with bold statements such as "... most child care--especially for infants and toddlers--is mediocre in quality and sufficiently poor to interfere with children's emotional and intellectual development" (Helburn et al, 1995). However, individual experiences reflect a different reality. Through gathering up-to-date data, this essay contrasts the current academic opinions to the experiences of everyday childcare users.
