Free text In this position paper, SOS Children's villages illustrates a number of reasons why children lose parental care despite preventive efforts, and highlights challenges related to finding the appropriate forms of out-of-home child care for them. It explains the underlying principles and features of its family-based child care model as one child care option based on family. The paper further calls for the establishment of binding and internationally agreed quality standards and in-depth monitoring for all forms of out-ot-home child care in compliance with the UNCRC.
