Title: Child Care
General Purpose: To inform
Specific purpose: I want my audience to be informed of child care facilities
Central purpose: I want my audience to be aware that they can save money

I. Introduction
Six months ago, corporate daycare facilities were cleaning out my bank account. I was losing the ability to pay for gas, rent and my utilities because all my money was going towards my son’s weekly daycare tuition. My parents could help me scrap on by here and there but that wasn’t there responsibly. It was then that my mother suggested that I should look into putting my son into a local licensed in home daycare facility opposed to a major corporate daycare facility. I was a little skeptical at first, but I was willing to look into a facility that could possibly save me a lot of money. I’m not an expert on daycare facilities but with my experience of working for a franchised facility and being a single mother and college student on a budget, it has given me the knowledge to advise others. For the purpose of my speech, I want to inform my audience on the different types of daycare facilities, the tuition and what to look for in choosing a facility. II. Main Points A. Types of facilities
[ ] First, there are three different types of daycare facilities that I’m going to be discussing and they are; corporate facilities, franchised facilities and in-home facilities. I know that everyone is wondering, what is the difference between a corporate facility and a franchised facility? The difference between these two facilities is simple, is it privately owned? We’ve all heard of or driven by a Children’s Courtyard, La Petite Academy or Kinder Care building because there’s one around every corner. These buildings are all corporate facilities, meaning they have a corporate office full of employees to tell them the proper way to run their facilities, their hours of operation and what rates to charge. They also have a wide variety of

    Due to the demand for on site daycares and the amount of companies which do not provide this service, being a company which does could result in high qualified employees to be recruited amongst our team solely for the fact of having a child placement program. On the same regard, an on-site daycare will also help to retain the employees our company has already secured, but who have considered leaving due to their not being a safe, close environment for their children to be…

    When it comes down to choosing the best childcare option for your child, the first factor that most parents look at is: what that particular child needs. Now, there is nothing wrong with that, but there are a number of factors that needs to be considered prior to making that final choice. The decision of whether to send your child to a commercial daycare center or an in-home family childcare should depend on more than just the need of the child. Parents need to also consider environment, cost, certification, daily schedules, and provider to child ratios.…

    Infant Child Care

    • 847 Words

    A common fear of misconception is that child care harms children; this fear might have been caused by ECE’ers who had poor practice and were the quality of care and education was very bad. When child care is low quality it can impact the child in a negative way, but when the child care is high quality the child has very positive effects. For example, there was a Caroline Abecedarian experiment where the children were placed in a high quality daycare from infancy to 5 years old and these children were monitored until 21 years of age. These children showed higher cognitive abilities, better health and higher incomes; all these benefits are higher than the cost of high quality child care. Also high quality child care can help offset the negative effects of dysfunctional families on children (Cleveland & Krashinsky).…

    More and more parents are making informed decisions about the care of small children while they are at work or school. Interviewing multiple daycare providers and dropping in unannounced to check things out before committing to hire daycare is now commonplace. This is causing daycare providers to increase the quality of care.. As parents become better informed they are no longer content for their child to be babysat by the television. A successful provider must be prepared to give examples of how a typical day for their child is structured. Public schools now expect children to have more skills conquered when they enter kindergarten. Such skills as knowing the alphabet, numbers, shapes and colors are now taught pre-kindergarten. Parents now look for daycare that functions more like preschool than ever before.…

    Over the past five to six decades women have been entering the workforce in ever increasing numbers. Some enter because of financial need and others for professional and career goals.
