Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994

PART THREE: Children and Parents
Chapter 12:  New Approaches to Practical Parenting, P246
Reality (of workplace nurseries) is usually a mother taking a baby or toddler twice daily on a packed commuter train and then a bus to a daycare center that is indeed sponsored by her company but is probably housed in a lower-rental back street. If it is close enough for lunch-break visits, reality is forgoing lunch-hour shopping for the evening meal and facing saying goodbye an extra time. Most existing workplace nurseries get no daytime visits from parents unless staff summon them in an emergency.

Children First
What our society must do--and is not doing--for our children today
by Penelope Leach 1994,  P246
There is a seldom spoken political reality that has to be faced, too. A workplace nursery means that a child's daycare place depends on a parent's employment. While that dependence certainly contributes to what management pamphlets call "work-force loyalty", it could act--as company housing notoriously does--to reduce parental choice and job mobility and even contribute to exploitation*.
*exploitation -  an act that exploits or victimizes someone (treats them unfairly).
