Abstract

The indoor quality of an occupied space is very important for the well-being of its occupants, especially in the case of young children. Although nowadays little children spend a lot of their time in day care centres, relatively little is known about the effects of different indoor environmental factors present in these day care centres. Therefore this research investigated the indoor air quality of the sleeping accommodation of two Dutch day care centre as well as the conditions with the baby cots. Besides an extensive literature research actual measurements were performed in two day care cent to find out the indoor air conditions within baby cots. The results of the detailed studies were compared with the results of earlier Dutch studies in day care centres. Although, our latest findings were not as bad as results from our earlier case studies, still more attention is needed to get a better understanding of the current situation in which babies sleep.
