Methods: Data were collected from 244 young children and their parents from 6 day care centers in Seoul. Parents completed a structured questionnaire and research assistants conducted developmental assessment and physical exam for a month, Feb 2007. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS Win, and analyzed through descriptive statistics. Results: 3.3% of subjects were less than 3th growth percentile of height, 8.6% were underweight, 6.2% were hypertensive, 7.8% were obese. The result of Korean Denver II developmental screening test showed 8.6% of subjects were classified as questionable or untestable. About 30% of the children had acute or chronic illness.  parents perceived the need of professional health care service for the child at day care centers(48.4%).
