    The purpose of this master thesis is to evaluate different authors’ opinion and to analyze and identify the factors that would help improve family’s living standards. Reasons for which a company would open onsite daycare center are looked for. This evolves factors such as: work-life balance, more free time for family, a higher degree of emotional connection between parents and children in case of private child care within the company, a better public reputation for companies etc. These factors can all have a significant influence on a decision to open a successful onsite daycare center. The empirical part of the thesis investigates parent’s opinions, comments and answers to questions related to intent to enroll their children in their employer’s onsite daycare center. We conducted a survey using a questionnaire to quantitatively investigate the opinion of parents with preschool children related to opening an onsite daycare center. The survey results show that women in general see more advantages in opening an onsite daycare canter in comparison to men. Furthermore, employees in management positions, in comparison to other employees, see more forthcomings in an onsite daycare centers. But in general they all think that the company they work for has little interest in opening such center. The parents that support onsite daycare centers see more potential for children to learn and develop. 60 % of the people who completed the questionnaire are willing to pay the same amount of money for childcare as they pay in a public or private daycare centers. The results reflect the BSH company employees' opinion (Bosch and Siemens Home Appliences Group, 2014).
