Child Care and Child Development

Presented at the 5th Anniversary Commemorative Symposium held by Benesse Institute for the Child Sciences and Parenting

I've been involved in child care research from the end of 1980s. At that time, there was already very large body of information about child care. For that reason, I would like to talk about child care from a historical perspective focusing on why its research has been conducted up until the present and the directions of future research.
