Highlights issues of principle and practice in day care facilities for young children. It compares examples of different practice, and emphasises the importance of developing close personal relationships between children, parents and staff; the management of separations and transitions; the assessment and discussion of the family’s and the child’s needs, and the support from other professionals for staff who, though well trained, need help with the stress of child care.
This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes, medical procedures and language of the time it was made. But the issues raised are timeless.
