III. Industry Analysis The childcare industry remains essentially a mom-and-pop business ringing up annual sales estimated to be between $10 billion and $35 billion. Although the national chains grew 200% during the 80s, they still accounted for only 5% of the childcare centers operating nationwide. In 1995, only 9 chains have as many as 24 childcare centers. The remainder operates on a much smaller scale. Several being non-profit childcare centers, or licensed as a family daycare, which operates within the providers home. Profit margins in the industry are very slim. The average for-profit daycare center earns 5% over costs. Some franchise operations function at about 7% margins. Information on the costs involved in the daycare industry was found in the 2003 report entitled Cost, Quality and Child Outcomes in Childcare Centers. Because childcare is so labor intensive, labor costs account for 70% of a centers total expensed costs. Facilities make up 15% of the expended cost budget. However economies of scale can be realized. Total expended costs decline as the number of children served within the childcare center increases. On average, childcare centers with forty (40) or more full-time enrolled children realized a 10% savings in total cost per child per hour, while childcare centers with 80 full-time enrolled children realized a 20% cost savings.

As found in the recent study, Cost, Quality and Outcomes Study and the Study of Quality in Family Care and Relative Care, childcare is one of the lowest paid occupations. A study by the National Committee on Pay Equity (1999) discovered that childcare is the second most underpaid profession, and has one of the highest turnover rates among any industry.

Childcare workers often receive few benefits, such as medical and dental insurance and paid time off. A good-quality center is characterized by adequate providers wages, education and training, resulting in lower turnover. The national childcare staffing study (1999) found that wages were the most important predictor of quality of care. Adequate pay is necessary to attract childcare workers with necessary education and training to provide children with quality care.

High turnover of staff is a concern. The primary reason why people leave their jobs with childcare centers is the low income. 31% of the providers earning $200 or less per week left the occupation during 1990 as compared with 15% for those earning more than that amount.

Other factors that influence their choice to leave of stay include: working conditions, increasing demands of parents that can not be met, lack of benefits, personal reasons (retirement or pregnancy) and lack of career opportunities.

How children spend their time before and after school is a concern for many parents. According to the Child Care Bulletin (March/April 1995, Issue 2) the average child spends 3 hours a day watching television or playing video games. Other activities include playing with friends, homework and reading. 76% of school-aged children whose mothers work are cared for by 2 or more different childcare arrangements per week. Almost 15% (14.6%) of children spend some time alone each week, with that percentage increasing with age.

Critical childcare factors There are 4 demographic and socio-economic factors that have a strong influence on the childcare industry. They are: The number of preschool children. The number of working mothers with preschool children. The likelihood that parents will select a childcare center over other childcare arrangements. The financial ability to pay for childcare centers.

Golden Honey Bee Pre-School Center Number of Pre-School Children. The preschool population has been increasing nationally on a steady basis. Since 1989, over 4-million children have been born annually, and that figure is expected to be similar for 1997. Data from the National Center of Health Statistics indicates that over half of the babies born in 1994 were born to women aged 20 to 29, while a third were born to women in their 30s. Among women aged 40 to 44, they saw an 8% increase in the number of babies born. Older mothers are more likely to earn more and spend more on their children. This steady growth can be attributed to several factors. One factor involves a higher than anticipated birth rate of immigrant mothers. Another factor is the fertility rates for women in there 30s are higher than anticipated. Children born to women in their 30s was 33% in 1988 as compared to 19% in 1976. The trend of women delaying childbirth is expected to continue. The encouraging impacts of this trend for the childcare industry is that women aged 30-34 are more likely to return to work quickly and require childcare services. These mothers have established careers to support their family lifestyles. One factor that could have an impact both positively and/or negatively is the decreasing size of American families. There will be fewer children born to each family, but the overall rate, as stated above, is expected to remain relatively consistent. The good news to the childcare industry is that the shift to later child bearing and smaller families provides a greater number of households with two incomes. These families with two incomes will have more disposable income to spend on their children and the mother will be more inclined to continue to work after the children are born. Number Of Working Mothers With Preschool Children The number of mothers with preschool children that are working has risen steadily since the 1960s. In 1990, 55% of the mothers with children under 6 were working and is expected to increase to 75% by the year 2000. This trend is expected to continue due to a shift in attitudes towards working women. The Census Bureau reports that the percentage of mothers with infants under the age of 1 year old returning to work has increased from 15% in1968 to 51% in 1988. The Study of Early Childcare, by the National Institute of Child Health and Development, found that half of the infants in the study were enrolled at a childcare center at 3 months of age.
