On the back cover:
"The cry for child day-care programs has been long and loud from feminists, but the puzzlement has been profound from mothers who haven't been able to find or establish a program in their neighborhood. Now, finally, there's a how-to book covering everything from the theory of day care to shopping lists for materials. Written by three women who started a store front day-care center for twenty children in Boston and in two years expanded it into two centers for 200 children, Day Care takes the would-be day-care parent through the obscurities of federal, state, and local rules and regulations, finding a site, interviewing teachers, setting up classrooms, finding funds, setting up high- and low-cost budgets, etc. An invaluable guide through the maze of coping intelligently with groups of young children, the book should serve as an evaluation backboard to parents whose children are already enrolled in day-care programs and should spur on timid mothers to set up programs of their own."
