If you are in the market for a new job and you have young children, you might want to look for employers with onsite daycare or childcare in the workplace. Here are a few facts that you should know before you begin your search.
1. The beginning of the day care movement originated with the welfare and reform movements of the 19th century and the initiation of child labor laws. It was also necessary once more women began to work and needed someone to watch their children
2. These days, companies that have a corporate childcare facility subsidize the cost of childcare that is provided there. They do this because helping parents to pay for the daycare services is a great way to retain the best employees.
3. Corporate daycare, which is also known as employer sponsored childcare, not only makes an employer more desirable to potential employees, it aids in the retention of current employees since they do not need to worry about choosing child care somewhere else.
4. The cost of putting two children in child care exceeds the median annual rent payments in every state in the country, according to a report by Child Care Aware of America.
