I have some questions……
1. Does your job have “traditional” (8-5, m-f) or “non-traditional” (such as retail, working weekends) hours?
2. If you are utilizing daycare does your daycare offer non-traditional availability, before 7am, after 7pm, nights, weekends??
3. Do you have a spouse( husband, wife, partner, same-sex partner) to help with the children?
4. What percent of YOUR take home pay goes for day care?
5. If you are a SAHM is it because you could not “afford” (daycare costs greater than or too much of available take home pay) to work?
6. If you chose no to attend school is it due to lack of affordable daycare?
7. Are you a single parent?
8. Education level?
9. Personal and Family income level?
Thanks for your answers.
If you are uncomfortable posting your answers or you want to tell me your daycare story on this board I opened a yahoo account.
