Childcare

With mothering and paid employment came the expenses of childcare. In this 1989 photograph, Helen (in the foreground) has dropped off her daughter Saskia to Jan, an in-home carer (who is also holding her own daughter). Helen and her son James are checking that he has everything before they leave for his day-care centre.
