FAMILY/BUSINESS (HARDCOVER)

This detailed and insightful book illustrates why providing on-site childcare to working families is at the heart of responsible business today. It is the story of how one corporation provides support for working families and preserves the courage and ingenuity that begins in early childhood.

About the Authors

Malinda P. Chouinard, with her husband Yvon, is the founder of sportswear manufacturer Patagonia, and the Great Pacific Child Development Center. Jennifer Ridgeway was the first Director of Advertising and Marketing at Patagonia, and author of Unexpected: 30 Years of Patagonia Catalog Photography. Ridgeway's three children were some of the first to enroll in the Great Pacific Child Development Center, and her grandchildren attend the center today. Anita Garaway-Furtaw is Patagonia’s Director of Family Services. She started with Patagonia in June 1985 as the director of the company’s onsite child care program, Great Pacific Child Development Center (GPCDC). Anita has a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development and a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. Anita’s past accomplishments include an appointment to the Ventura County Commission on Women, president of the Ventura County Association for the Education of Young Children and a founding member of the Ventura County Child Care Planning Council. At Patagonia, Anita’s current position includes development, implementation, and evaluation of global work-family programs, and she plays with the children as often as possible.

About Book

Our love of wild and beautiful places and our determination to save them began outside. We want the same for our children. This visual guide illustrates why Patagonia’s on-site child care center is a key component of our corporate mission and why providing high quality on-site child care to working families is essential to keeping our word. In safe and engaging environments we support unstructured play where our children learn hand-eye coordination, balance and mental agility. Anything that can be done indoors is better learned outdoors where physical strength, creativity and confidence develop. True to Patagonia’s climbing roots we encourage risk as the children learn and grow in an atmosphere of trust. This book is the visual story of how one corporation provides the support working families need to preserve American ingenuity that begins in early childhood.

Made in Canada.
