In the first few years of life, a human being is capable of absorbing more information at that time than they will ever be able to absorb again. Therefore, it is instrumental to get kids involved with learning and soaking in as much information as possible. Although most parents in the United States have full-time jobs that don’t allow them to be around their kids 24/7, there are still private day care solutions, corporate childcare solutions, and public day care providers out there.
In the case of employer provided child care, employers usually subsidize the cost of the corporate childcare facility, helping parents to pay for the daycare services. More than 80 of the companies in Working Mothers Magazine’s “Top 100 Companies For Working Mothers” offer some form of corporate child care to their employees. Unsurprisingly, those companies are more lucrative to work for.
Ultimately, day care provides a place for parents to take their children and trust that they are being taken care of throughout the day and their learning is being facilitated as well. Some studies have even found that children who attended private day care were more likely to be more successful than their peers who did not attend day care.
