This paper presents an overview of the definition of child care. It provides interviews with married, separated and single parents and a research on an agency. The paper investigates child care costs, licensed and unlicensed day care centers and regular child care. The paper also discusses future trends in child care.

From the Paper:

"Probably one of the most significant changes in child care already under way is that child care will be more family centered and more dedicated to helping parents achieve their goals. Public schools will participate to an even greater extent in providing child care, especially before-school and after-school care. Also, preschool programs are rapidly growing and these programs will ease parents' needs for child care. The number of women who enter the workforce, full or part time, will increase. In particular, women with children under three will represent the fastest-growing group of parents seeking child care. For many working parents, staying home with their children is not an option or a desire. "Federal efforts at welfare reform, which aim to make a permanent dependency on government funds a thing of the past, have tremendous implications for child care. Professionals are concerned that the increased demand for child care caused by taking parents off welfare, providing them with job training, and encouraging them to work will result in lower-quality care" (Morrison, 2000)."
