How it's used

What it really means:

Child care "Childcare" is a more appropriate term than "Daycare" since we care for children, we do not care for days! No it's not! Although 'Childcare' has a better connotation than 'daycare', Dr. Westman wrote, "The term 'day care' is more accurate than 'child care', because it is defined and necessitated by the hours of the day during which employed parents are unavailable to their children".
-- "The Risks of Day Care for Children, Parents and Society" by Jack C. Westman, M.D., Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison, Wisconsin, Day Care Child Psychology & Adult Economics, 1989, p 1
Child-centered Our daycare program is child-centered, developmentally appropriate, and balanced with a variety of creative and recreational activities. Meaningless drivel, since all daycares are "child-centered", in the same way that all zoos are "animal-centered".

Provider Appreciation Day (also see
National Provider Appreciation Day)
Childcare Provider Appreciation Day is celebrated each year the Friday before Mother's Day in the U.S.


A new pseudo-holiday established in 1996, benefiting both the daycare and greeting card industries.
For parents who have enrolled their child in an institution boasting a high caregiver-to-child ratio, this could get expensive.
On the positive side, given the high turnover rate of childcare workers, you'll never have to worry about giving the same present twice! 
Curriculum Our daycare uses an emergent curriculum in our infant classroom... Some cynical people claim the emergent curriculum philosophy is merely a "cop-out" for not having a lesson plan. But realistically, harried daycare workers would be hard-pressed to follow any curriculum for infants, considering their schedule!
Even before Diego & Berkeley were born, their parents enrolled them in San Jose's most prestigious daycare. Baby farms, child warehouse, daytime orphanage, kiddie kennel, pediatric penitentiary 
The noun, day care, didn't appear in dictionaries until fairly recently.  It was included for the first time in The Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition, published in 1993.)
Anyone who comes up with a humorous definition for a previously undefined daycare "buzz word" that we select for our daycare glossary will win a stylish "Daycares Don't Care" window cling.  submit entries here
