Corporate Day-Care To humanize the work setting it would be appropriate to set up day-care facilities at working companies. This gives the working mothers the security that their child is being taken care of within the same premises. Not only will it benefit the mother but also the company, for it would make the company more prosperous. Such cases in which the mother would stay late the mother could finish her work without any worries. Establishing a day-care center will cause no worries for the mother in finding a babysitter, reduce absentees or tardiness of the employees, and parents would be able to spend time with their children.

Finding a babysitter can be a difficult task. A mother's worst fear is to find an abusive babysitter for her child. This is much of the case nowadays. TV specials point out cases in which children are often abused by the elders that take care of them and afterwards try to cover the situation.

To find a good babysitter the mother must first, go to an agency and ask for a certified babysitter; second, the mother and the agency would have to set an interview date with the babysitter; third, interview the babysitter and examine her references. This could be difficult and time consuming if the mother is working. If day-care is provided by the employer the mother wouldn't miss work. Knowing that the day-care center is within the worksite it would give the mother comfort. The mother would be aware that the babysitters at the center are qualified for the job. In order for a company to be prosperous the employees must attend their daily task. If the mother takes her child to a babysitter, it makes it difficult because she has to wake up early and maybe travel to a certain extent. This can be very hard and frustrating after weeks pass by and it would normally make the mother late to work. If the babysitter is not available it would cause her to be absent. The employees must also consider that there is traffic and that it may cause delay, for this reason, companies need day-care centers, for the mother would only make one trip back and forth. On a typical morning, the mother can wake up a little later than usual, make breakfast for her family, dress the baby and still be on time to arrive to work. This idea will satisfy both the mother and her boss.

Finally, parents would be able to spend time with their child. New mothers for example, may prefer to spend time with their child during their lunch breaks. During the lunch break the mother would be able to feed her baby. The mother can arrange her break schedule to that of her baby. If the mother breast feeds the baby, she will have time to feed the baby or prepare the meal as well as to check up from time to time.

Therefore, having a day-care center in the worksite would be advantageous for the employer and the employee. The company would have it's task accomplished because the absentees would reduce due to the day-care center and the mother would feel secure knowing that her child is under the proper care. The day-care center would allow the mother to visit her child during her breaks resulting satisfaction to both the mother and the company.
