Preview

This chapter discusses the introduction of nursery school and how this affected a mother's job of taking care of her children. Nursery schools during that time placed more focus on child development rather than allowing mothers to earn. In the end it was determined that the arrival of nursery schools led to the laying of groundwork for public support of educational programs for young children in the future.
