Nursery Crimes: Sexual Abuse in Day Care seeks to determine whether day care is a high risk environment.

Perpetrators are described and various strategies evaluated for screening them from access to children. The process of detection and disclosure and the professional response to cases of abuse are examined carefully for ideas about how to promote better and earlier reporting. The relative effectiveness of different approaches and types of actions taken by licensing and law enforcement agencies are evaluated. To help work with the victims in the aftermath, the impact on both the children and the community is examined. Policy implications and specific recommendations are included in each section.
