Abstract

Very few studies have looked at the experience or development of children under three years of age who receive substitute day care. The paucity of official provision for this age group reflects, at least in part, a widely held view that children under three are best cared for at home, as does the fact that the limited places available are allocated to children whose acute needs make institutional care appear the lesser of two evils.
