Child Care Service Owners
Employment for child care workers is expected to grow faster than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. More women than ever are part of the workforce; of those who have children, many take only an abbreviated maternity leave. The Center for the Child Care Workforce reports that every day, more than 12 million preschool-aged children in the United States are in some type of child care. Corporations have tried to open their own day care centers for the children of employees but haven't always had much success. Often these corporations turn to outside sources and contract with independent care centers to meet these child care needs.
