The funding for the Childcare facility at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay has been a constant and continuous issue from 1972 and into today’s modern society for returning adult female and male students. The cost of childcare has often inflicted the lives of both low-income families since the 1970’s in the state of Wisconsin. An example of this study can be seen from a Wisconsin State Journal from a January 1989 issue entitled: “As Need Grows in 1990’s who’ll offer Childcare?” The main point of the article addressed the main concern of who or what businesses should endorse when it comes to childcare for their employees and the high importance it had for their employees.
In order to reach a certain number of finances for the childcare center in 1989, there had to be a high capacity of children that would be enrolled at the center. An example of the number students needed at the childcare center came from correspondence letter by David Outcalt who wrote a letter to Jerry Olson that basically stated that in order for successful financing to occur there needed to be eighty children who attended the center, otherwise just sixty children would put the Childcare Center at Green Bay in a inadequate position financially if it were to remain open.
An example of the total estimate of what the Budget Summary for the new Childcare center in 1988 was a total of nine hundred and eight-two thousand dollars and that entailed new construction, development, landscape, design, and contingency.
