Why Should We Care about Child Care? [Video].
Families and Work Inst., New York, NY.
Produced as a touchstone for the White House Conference on Child Care, this brief video (5 minutes) presents a collage of voices speaking on the need for quality child care. The voices include those of parents, physicians and child development experts, and child care workers. Among the threads touched upon by these voices are working mothers, the need for stimulus for early brain development, the relationships children form with caregivers, the effects of good child care and repercussions of poor care, affordability, the role of business in supporting child care, and the benefits of quality child care to the community.
