Summary/Abstract: The text analyzes the existing day care service in primary schools from the perspective of parents as social actors. In contemporary Serbian society, parents are exposed to different social pressures arising from their different structural positions. The analysis tries to reconstruct: (a) the reasons why parents opt for this service, instead of other as institutional support for their own project of parenting, (b) the way in which they perceive this service (in the sense of satisfaction) and (c) how they would like that this service be organized in the future, and (d) whether certain specific parents’ structural characteristics influence that. Contrary to the research presumptions analysis showed that gender is not distinctive variable, in contrast to the education and place of residence of parents.
