We are hometown news

Support home daycare providers

June 11, 2012
First of all, I am a working, middle class man. My wife and myself work 10- to 12-hour days. That being said, we have two young girls that go to a home based daycare, one for a full day, one to grab the bus.
I, along with several other young, working class residents attended the town meeting last Monday. Some, I assume, jumped through hoops to attend, seeing they had young children, like myself. My wife and I put our absolute trust in our daycare provider who cares for our children like they were her own. The reason for Article 27, my fellow residents, was to bring the town up to the state code.
Most of us young hard working citizens would be unable to work full time without these unbelievable home daycares. These daycare providers are, really, special people; their hearts are of gold and their patience, I envy. This community should not only support them, but applaud them. The days of the Dad working and Mom staying home, sorry Nay-ers, are archaic. This is 2012, not 1972 ... And for those whom complain of any increased traffic, you will not get any sympathy from me. I live on Hanward Hill. One hundred cars go zipping down my street Monday through Friday during a school week from 7:15 to 7:45, along with buses, mini buses, and school vans.
Embrace and support our daycare providers, they are incredible human beings!
