Jacquelin Hayden, Bronwen Cohen, Marcy Whitebook, Rita Chudnovsky and Helen Penn
April 1998

In November, 1998, a one-day symposium titled "Advancing early childhood care and education in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Australia: Exchanging knowledge and strategies across borders" was held at Toronto's Metro Hall. These four nations have had a common approach to programs for young children in contrast to the nations of western Europe. None has developed a coherent program of universal publicly-funded early childhood care and education.

The great child care debate: The long-term effects of non-parental child care

Gillian Doherty
Occasional paper 7

This paper reviews studies that compare children with non-parental child care experience to children without this experience. Two major themes emerge from this review: first, the research does not support the view that participation in child care is harmful; and second, it is important that the child care experience is of high quality.
