Within the early childhood sector, there are moves towards an integrated approach to service development and delivery. There is evidence to suggest that this may not be universally satisfactory. It is argued that research to elicit parent conceptions about their choices of early childhood seNices is both necessary and timely, in order to develop a system that caters for the needs and expectations of families and young children. This project details the phenomenographic study aimed at generating new knowledge about parental choice of early childhood services.
