“Early childhood education programs have flourished over the past few decades as more and more parents come to believe in the benefits of starting children’s education as early as possible and find themselves in need of daycare” (Phillips, 2015, p. 1). In this literature review on child care, I analyzed and synthesized several Child Care studies and research articles. I focused on the significance of different types of child care service, parents expectations of the child care, benefits of early childhood education, and disadvantages in early childhood education. The role of home-based daycares and daycare centers each has a distinction that impacts the child differently through the information presented to them. Using several Child Care studies and research articles, home-based can provide a greater influence on the child’s future outcomes.
