Beginning in the post WWII years, more women were joining the workforce and needed out of home child care.
That number has continued to rise, with approximately 31.4 million children in the United States receiving out of home care.
The quality of child care is important, since it is estimated that 90% of human brain development occurs in the first five years of life.
