C.--v.Bibliography Includes bibliographic references.Summary The following standards apply to day care of children of various ages for whatever reason it is provided, but for the immediate purpose of the committee they are designed specifically for the care of children whose mothers are employed in occupations related to national defense.

The committee is unanimous in its belief that mothers of preschool children and especially of those under 2 years of age should not be encouraged to seek employment- children of these ages should in general be cared for by their mothers in their homes.

It believes also that when mothers go to work there is an obligation on the part of the community to help parents plan for the care of their children in such a way that the children shall gain and not lose by the experience. For this reason the standards given in this report are not just for custodial care, but include suggestions for acceptable standards of health supervision, educational opportunity, and social service.

The committee believes that the standards here set forth are not only desirable standards for day care of children, whether public or private, free or pay, all-day or part-day, under home, school, public-health, or social-service auspices, but are also possible standards for the services that should be set up in defense areas.

They are not intended to be minimum in the sense that every item must be accepted in order to guard the children from harm- they are meant to be standards of good care that the committee believes can and should be approximated in nearly all situations where day care is needed.--vii-viii.
