5: 2005 - 78.3% of children had at least one parent that had to work year round, full time. | 2000 - 67% of parenting mothers were in the workforce | Daycares are good because they can handle a flexible schedule.

7: Day cares provide a place for social skills to grow | Children learn: | * Negotiation | *behavior control | * listening skills | * speaking skills | * confidence | With higher social skills, the transfer to an actual school will be much simpler
