  • The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of variables of interest on mothers' choices of infant care. The variables of interest in this study were categorized into the following three areas: 1) demographic characteristics of mothers and infants, 2) structural and procedual dimensions of infant care facilities, and 3) maternal beliefs on child-rearing. The subjects of this study were mothers whose infants were currently cared by at infant care facilities(n=185) and those who were on the waiting list to use non-maternal infant care(n=53). The main results of this study were as follows. First, mothers of this study preferred to select a type of center-based subsidized infant care over other types of care(family day care) due to quality of the program. Second, the mothers who were not using infant care and cared for their infants at homes reported that there were limitations in their choices of types of infant care due to accessibility and availability of public subsidized infant care facilities, and their child rearing goals were more likely to emphasize learning achievement and maturity than character education or personality. The mothers were more likely to choose a family home care over center-based public subsidized care when they were employed, had younger infants, had longer period of time on waiting lists, and emphasized structural dimensions of infant care than center-based care users. Implications for research and practices were discussed along with the main results of this study.

In addition, we need to hold various viewpoints, indicators, and evaluation methods to recognize discrimination and multiplicity of individual childcare centers. And we have to hold cooperative relationships among childcare centers, parents, community, and government.

  • The location and distribution of daycare centers do not reflect local daycare demand enough although government has increased facilities and financial supports to solve the low birthrate as a social problem. This study tried to examine spatial inequality of daycare center distribution by comparing the number of daycare facilities between city and rural communities in Jeollanam-Do. Analyzing the differences between city (5 Cities) and rural area (17 Guns) in Jeollanam-Do, it has been found that there were large differences in the number of available facilities per 1,000 children between Cities (10.9 facilities) and Guns as rural area (6.2 facilities). The average number of facilities in each City and Gun also showed a large discrepancy as a City has 147.8 facilities and a Gun has 15.4 facilities, respectively. There were total 78 Dong or Myeon with no facility at all as a dead zone of daycare, and 8 of them were Myeons in cities with 560 children, which accounted for 0.7% of total population of children in cities. On the other hand, 70 Myeons in Guns with 5,269 children have no facilities at all, which accounted for 11% of total population of children in Guns. Public facilities that parents prefer were more in cities (87) than Guns (28). Therefore, it is necessary to consider various childcare policies with minimizing discrepancies between city and rural area and investigating more accurate local demands and characteristics.

  • 본 연구에서는 대전, 세종 지역 등에서 근무하는 어린이집 보육교사 298명을 대상으로 그들의 이직의도에 영향을 미치는 요인을 분석하였다. 이 과정에서 어린이집은 가정, 민간, 공공형 어린이집으로 나누어 분석하였다. 분석결과, 조사대상자의 건강상태, 조직건강에서의 원장 리더십 영역, 사회적 지지가 이직의도에 공통적으로 영향을 미치는 요인으로 나타났지만, 각 유형별로 이직의도에 영향을 미치는 요인이 크게 다른 것으로 나타났다. 특히, 공공형 어린이집의 보육교사들은 이직의도가 가장 낮은 것으로 나타났다. 다만, 공공형 어린이집 보육교사의 경우에는 직무스트레스에서의 행정적 업무 영역이 이직의도에 가장 크게 영향을 미치는 것으로 나타났다. 이러한 연구결과를 반영하여 보육정책을 수립하고 유보통합을 진행할 필요가 있음을 제언하였다.
