We need to keep this day care open. Mother's need to work and children need to be cared for. To close this is a travesty and against what makes any sense at all. We need to support these families and their children. That's where I want my tax dollars going. Affordable, dependable child care. This day care needs to remain open and solution can and must be found.
I have been in the childcare field since 1979 and feel this is very a disrespectful move to make without ample notice to parents. There is already limited childcare in this area and now parents are scrambling. This will have a ripple effect as now some parents may not be able to work therefore turning to social assistance, poor and dangerous childcare arrangements plus putting stress on the entire family which could result in illness, child neglect or abuse!
Being an Rece as well as a parent, I know the significance and peace of mind that a well established, licensed child care centre provides for all. Closing a centre in a town that is in need is truly sad news
