Abstract

The purposes of this study were to identify the needs and concerns of residents of the state of South Dakota about child care, and to identify the extent of their knowledge and attitudes about current regulations concerning child care and satisfaction. As all individuals who are registered voters can have an effect on child care, through exercising the right to vote on issues and for individuals for political office, so also may all residents in the state be affected by child care. This study was part of a larger study that assessed the needs and concerns, as well as knowledge and attitudes, of residents, licensed child care providers, members of the South Dakota Association for the Education of Young Children (SDAEYC) and South Dakota legislators toward child care in the state of South Dakota.
