Throughout Adelaide Hoodless's life she has made many contributions to Canada. One of the major ones was that she organized the first school for women, Household Science School, which opened in September 1895 (Adelaide Hunter Hoodless 1875-1910, n.d. pg.1). She believed that it was unfair only boys could go on to higher standards while girls had to stay home and do household work all day. So with this, Adelaide also became the co-founder of many organizations such as the National Council of Women (NCW), Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) (Stamp, 03/25/08, pg.1). She also nationalized the Young Women’s Christian Association also known as Y.W.C.A and was the founder of Women’s Institutes (ibib).
Wald witnessed first-hand the poor living conditions of residents in the city. To aid this struggling population, she begins the Visiting Nurse Service in 1893. Two years later, she established the Henry Street Settlement to further aid those in need. Wald also worked on behalf of women’s rights and the welfare of children, founding the Women’s Trade Union League and spearheaded a federal organization to help children. After years lobbying for this idea, the Children’s Bureau was established in 1912.

I also studied mathematics, philosophy, religion, and statistics and became the first female member of the Royal Statistical Society. I believed that God was calling me for a career in nursing, and when I was 31-years old, my family reluctantly agreed to my being trained as a nurse. Nurses in Britain at that time were seen as being in a lowly profession, comprised mainly of uneducated, working class girls, who were often depicted as drunk, debauched, and in hospitals that were unfit for ladies (Whyte, 2010). Nevertheless, in 1851, I went to Germany to the Deaconess Institute in Kaiserswerth, where I trained as a nurse for three months. I worked for a year as the head of the Institute for the Care of Sick Gentle Women on Harley Street in London.

(Parsons) She founded several programs and charities that are still used today. Being encouraged by her parents, she soon got involved in the community. Lowell worked with the State Charity Aid Association, creating more proficient facilities for the unfortunate.

After one year, Ellen and her husband travelled to US and they left their four sons in the care of the grandparents. While her husband pursued a graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin’s School of Agriculture, Ellen studied accounting at the Madison College of Business.
Originating in Europe in the late 18th and early 19th century, day cares were established in the United States by private charities in the 1850s, the first being the New York Day Nursery in 1854. The day care industry is a continuum from personal parental care to large, regulated institutions. The vast majority of childcare is still performed by the parents, in house nanny or through informal arrangements with relatives, neighbors or friends. For example, in Canada, among two parent families with at least one working parent, 62% of parents handle the childcare themselves, 32% have other
