Yet what American children need is not a compromise between freedom and collectivism, but a full window shift in precisely the opposite direction: decrusting employment and child-care regulations to give families more freedom to care for their children according to their own preferences, strong governmental preferences for marriage and self-sufficient child raising, and a cultural shift to make it clear that families should be responsible for their own children, and that we expect people to make children only when they are capable of caring for those children without stealing the fruits of other people’s labor. What that requires is not so much money as it does marriage.
Currently NO OPENINGS - ages 16 months through school aged! A native of Denver, I have provided licensed child care in my home since 1980. I have excellent references. I serve nutritious, high quality, home cooked meals. I offer an atmosphere where learning can take place in an easy, fun environment. There are plenty of outdoor experiences. Activities include daily story time and a Christian based preschool program. In the summer, children ages 3 and up may take daily swimming lessons offered through Parks and Recreation, usually for a period of 9 weeks, Monday - Thursday. Lessons are parent paid. Thank you.
I recently moved back to Boulder after living in Brooklyn for 7-years and am available for house sitting, pet sitting and babysitting. I am 30-years old, very lively, active, responsible.. and have many years of experience with all types of pets and children of different ages. I am a certified yoga-instructor and do freelance design. I grew up in Boulder, went to Boulder High School and graduated from Indiana University in 2011. I was working in the fashion industry during my time in NYC, as well as teaching adult/children's yoga. I have cared for several families with children aged 6-months to 18-years old. Other things to know about me: I am extremely responsible, fun, active and love meeting new people. I'm big on exploring... adventuring... traveling. Snowboarding is one of my favorite things to do on the planet (as well as hiking them). Please let me know if there is any additional information I can provide you with (happy to answer any/all questions you may have).
Australia has a large child care industry, however in many locations (especially in inner-city suburbs of large cities and in rural areas) the availability is limited and the waiting periods can be up to several years. The Australian government's Child Care Subsidy scheme provides generous assistance with child care costs, but this still leaves many families with a large out of pocket expense. The median weekly cost of centre-based long day care in 2013 was approximately A$364 which puts it out of the reach of lower income earners. http://y2u.be/eeCahRCgOfI
