Using Philadelphia as a case study, Rose traces the transformation of day care from a charity for poor single mothers in the early 20th century to a socially accepted need of ordinary families by the 1950s. She explores the history of day care from the perspective of the families who used it as well as the philanthropists and social workers who administered it.
