A Gift to Lowertown:
Shannon Ricketts - There was a day when working mothers were frowned upon. Only the most desperate, whose husbands had died or were incapable of supporting their family, resorted to leaving their home to find paid employment. Then, as now,"the question was how to find a safe place for their pre-school children? The response was the beginning of the day care movement. The earliest-known purpose-built day care in Ottawa is still very much in use at 195 George Street, just across from the Metro grocery store.
