A Mother's Work
 by Deborah Fallows
©1985, P90

Most of the teachers this mother had seen had finished high school but nothing more. "You can tell by their verbal patterns," she said. The children imitate them, and their speech habits "are rough to break, out and out wrong. It's tough to correct that in the children, and that's been a struggle."

A Mother's Work
 by Deborah Fallows
©1985, P164

Because the social prestige accorded child care is so low, most parents feel they're overcharged no matter what they're paying. As a result, many day care centers exist in an atmosphere of permanent crisis, under conflicting pressures from parents who think they're spending too much and staff members who feel they're earning too little.

Other things being equal, the for-profit day care chains will cut back more heavily on quality than other day care facilities, because they're exporting more money away from the centers.
…when a local franchise of a national chain receives a hundred dollars, some of the money must be sent back to headquarters, to provide dividends and profits and pay (high) corporate salaries…

A Mother's Work

Combining the profit-making motive with serving children is a tricky affair. A blanket statement saying it can't be done is decidedly unfair. But when services that matter to children and profits that matter to investors are competing for the same dollars, the temptations are great. Quite simply, the best economic interests of the chains do not depend on the quality of service they offer the children but on the strength of the dividend they offer their shareholders.
… this one driving economic factor--the need to generate large-scale profits--…has a constant and pernicious* effect on the quality of care the children receive.

(On-site day care centers) are rare because they reflect a deep commitment and cannot be quickly or lightly arranged. Many businesses naturally resist such entanglements, feeling that child care is simply not their concern.

Hospitals, which need nurses, are among the leaders in providing on-site day care facilities.
