The Early Years of Daycare

Pearl C. Anderson Day Nursery - 1958

It was not enough for working mothers in Garland to find jobs in 1958; they also had the challenge of arranging oversight for their kids in a city without daycare facilities. Longtime child welfare advocate Pearl C. Anderson established a fund at the Dallas Community Chest Trust Fund (which later became CFT) to respond to the problem. The Pearl C. Anderson Day Nursery, part of the Dallas Day Nursery Association, was an immediate success, thanks to Anderson’s vision and dedication.
