The difficulty of describing day care

from The Boston Globe

A new bill in Congress could expand tax credits for families who use child care. Or should we call it "day care"? Or "preschool"? Or "nursery school"? Or "pre-K"? The terms that policy makers apply to early-childhood education evolve over time, and not just due to random shifts in bureaucratic fashion. While terms such as "day care" and "early learning" describe similar services, their names reflect entirely different world views about the role of women in society and about how very young children should be spending their time. more
