February 1975. I feel that the information available in this article is
good enough to help build a base for our research project as it
demonstrates a positive effect dating back to 1975. The article is still
being cited (checked on Web of Science)
In 1-2 paragraphs discuss the
contribution of this article to
your topic.
Content Relevance
This article can be utilized to justify the positive impact of day care
centers on students’ achievements. The article also focuses on the
advantages of having a day care on site, people with access to a day care
versus those who must fend for themselves. The achievements/statistics
of those supported directly by the School/Organization day care would
assist in developing our own plan.
This article appears to be of some use to me however it will be a
group decision on how the information will be used if used at all!
Scholarly, “peer review”. The article contains statistical information
and graphs to back up the findings. Pediatrics, Feb75, Vol. 55 Issue 2
gives me the impression that it is directed at the profession. This article
provides information that would be of interest to the profession.
Extensive references to journals are cited at the end of the article.

Abstract: ABSTRACT. Making quality child-development services available
for children of mothers in one vocational training program
significantly improved the mothers' performances. On the
average, mothers with children receiving these services
stayed in the Job Corps longer and more frequently completed
their vocational training program. Since longer length of
stay and program completion show a positive correlation with
a better chance of placement and higher initial wage, the new
Job Corps program improves a mother's potential for economic
self-sufficiency. In addition, mothers in the program are
able to learn how to better understand their children and
provide for their needs. Nonresident mothers in the new
mother-and-child program performed as well as resident
mothers. This similarity points towards the widespread
potential for initiating similar programs in many vocational
training and educational settings. If, as in the Job Corps
program, providing quality child-care arrangements for
mothers in such settings as high schools, colleges, other
manpower training programs, prisons, and places of employment
can improve the mother's general motivation, enhance her
earning capacity, and improve her ability to be a good
mother, then dollars invested in these programs will show a
high return. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
