Excerpts from report:

Three highly respected researchers have written papers for the CEECD about child care and its impact on young children, aged 0­-2. This topic has enjoyed vigorous debate among both the general public and researchers as a large proportion of mothers with young children are currently working outside home - some by choice, others, out of necessity. Most parents are therefore concerned with the following questions:

- What should I do with my child when I am not at home?
- Will it hurt my child if I work outside of the home?
