This is something that is affecting me personally right now and I am curious to see others opinions about this.


I use in-home daycare for my boys and around here in-home daycare is a pretty popular option.

We have late start every week, those don't drive me crazy so much simply because they have childcare in place at the school and we use it as an opportunity to sleep in a bit on those days because we have later evening activities on the night before on a routine basis...


Take the month of March, it's a why bother going to school month?

swell for you. I think they're a big fat waste of a day frankly.

The late starts drive me crazy because I am the drop off lady (well wait for the bus lady and drop off at daycare lady). So I am late for work.

I think it's a waste of a school day and disruptive to the schedule-- that's me talking as a child of teachers.
