It allows the parents the advantage of being close to their children while still being able to maintain stability with their careers. According to Statistics Canada, the amount of two parented full time working families has gone up 17% since the 1980’s. As a result of such an outcome, more employees in larger and smaller based companies are finding it harder to keep up with both risen work loads and home life necessities, which in turn have caused more absentees in the work place.

With the growth of this company expanding with many parent employees who are in favour of an onsite daycare, it would be in good interest to consider the possibilities of having a daycare to prevent absentees and also to create less stress, morale, profit and happier employees.
