This project, conducted in Korea, sought to investigate the physical environment of 24hurs child care centers in order to suggest desirable perspective on it. For this study, documentary research, interviews and survey methods were used. Materials of the 24hurs child care center were reviewed. The interviews and survey were conducted in 25 public and private centers in Seoul, Busan, Ulsan and Jinju. Caregivers were surveyed children's daily living and regarding the evaluation of physical environment of kitchen, bathroom and restroom of the center. The result of the documentary review indicates that there need to be increased the number of the 24hr child care centers with quality. Mostly, caregivers were satisfied with the physical indoor environment of the center. However, they wanted the sleeping room and bathroom with bathtub for 24hurs caring children. This result would be helpful to create useful database for planning the 24hrs child care center.
