Child Care

Child care (or "childcare", "child minding", "babycare", "daycare" or "preschool") means caring for and supervising a child or children, usually from newborn to age thirteen. Child care is a broad topic covering a wide spectrum of contexts, activities, social and cultural conventions, and institutions. The majority of child care institutions that are available require that child care providers have extensive training in first aid and are CPR certified. In addition, background checks, drug testing, and reference verification are normally a requirement. Child care can cost up to $15,000 for one year in the United States.

Famous quotes containing the words care and/or child:

    Hatred observes with more care than love does.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    You know that your toddler needed love and approval but he often seemed not to care whether he got it or not and never seemed to know how to earn it. Your pre-school child is positively asking you to tell him what does and does not earn approval, so he is ready to learn any social refinement of being human which you will teach him....He knows now that he wants your love and he has learned how to ask for it.
    Penelope Leach (20th century)
