The NYT had an article this weekend about raising the price of their day-care costs.

Even homeschoolers utilize the outside world to help educate with the education and enrichment of their children.

I drop Caroline off at 8:15 and get Daniel on the bus at 8:30.

For the first 5 years my kids were in the center they previously were in, there was no turnover.

Did you report these daycares?

Actually, all of the homeschoolers I know (5 families) utilize groups outside of their immediate family in order to provide a well-rounded education for their children.

AAh, the old "I was just following orders" excuse. Gotcha. Did you ever report the lapses to the state board of health?

"There is no point in arguing all the stuff you posted as you said there have been MANY other people who had the same stories as I. "

Yes, and most have been proven false with subsequent postings (they frequently have trouble keeping their "facts" straight). You seen to be doing a bit a back tracking yourself in this post.

I'm willing to venture a guess and say no....


Because that would have been a call to action rather than just the random finger pointing and tisk tisking she is doing right now.

That is what I thought...


While I don't know any homeschoolers IRL, the ones I have met via the boards have all utilized the village to help their children grow.

Staggered hours are the norm here too.

My mom keeps my son but he will be going to day care full time Oct-Dec so she can help my sister with her new baby when he arrives. I was looking through the tons of paperwork and they don't allow cloth diapers. I don't use them but I thought that would suck if I did. I wonder if all daycares are like that.


Anyway - it is going to cost me $230 a week to have my son in there M-F. I provide diapers and milk and they provide the rest. But I make my baby's food so I will be providing that too. Once he "graduates" to an older class next year when he is only going 2 or 3 days a week it will be easier to manage.


Big plus for me at this place is the fact that they have web cams all over the rooms and facility so I can keep an eyeball on him throughout the day. I only work 8 miles away so I hope I can handle not leaving work and driving over there if
