To find information on daycares, the databases Education via ProQuest and Education Research Complete would both be great places to start.

You will also need to think about what search terms you want to use to find articles on your topic. What terms/words can you use in the database to help find the perfect results? Not sure how to develop keywords or search terms? Click here.

For your search terms, try some of these options: 

  • daycare AND socialization
  • childcare AND socialization
  • "social development" AND daycare AND home
  • benefits AND daycare AND home
  • home AND daycare
  • daycare AND assessment

You might also try searching for childcare assessment, accreditation, or ranking agencies.
