kids in a circleFor over 20 years, Wesleyan Academe has guided young minds in a Christ-centered education.

Definition of Day Care

Printed on Wikipedia

Child care or day care is the care of a child during the day by a person other than the child’s legal guardians, typically performed by someone outside the child’s immediate family. Day care is typically an ongoing service during specific periods, such as the parents’ time at work.

The service is known as child care in the United Kingdom and Australia, crèche in Ireland and New Zealand, and child care or day care in North America (although child care also has a broader meaning).

Child care is provided in nurseries or crèches or by a nanny or family child care provider caring for children in their own homes. It can also take on a more formal structure, with education, child development, discipline and even preschool education falling into the fold of services.

Some childminders care for children from several families at the same time, either in their own home (commonly known as “family day care” in Australia) or in a specialized child care facility. Some employers provide nursery provisions for their employees at or near the place of employment.

Child care in the child’s own home is traditionally provided by a nanny or au pair, or by extended family members including grandparents, aunts and uncles.

History of Day Care

Printed on Wikipedia

Day care appeared in France about 1840, and the Société des Crèches was recognized by the French government in 1869. Originating in Europe in the late 18th and early 19th century, day cares were established in the United States by private charities in the 1850s, the first being the New York Day Nursery in 1854.
