In most parts of Canada it can cost double the tuition of private school, usually around $25,000 per year, per kid.
Sorry, that's for two kids, not one. Easily $1200 per month though for one child.
Don't have kids if you can't afford daycare
[quote]Daycare costs more than college
If I ever have kids, they'll have to choose.
It's either daycare or college.
Yet I'm always hearing about how we will not pay daycare workers a decent salary. How can it cost that much if daycare workers are so poorly paid?
I really don't care.
Perhaps parents should consider raising their own children instead of shifting that responsibility to child care facilities?
A revolutionary idea, I know.
R6 and R3 take turns licking Sarah Palin's clit.
They also pay for daycare once the child starts attending school.
If you start work at 8 and have to drop your kid by 7, there's an hour window before he/she is allowed into school and then a few hours between the end of the school day and when you can pick him/her up.
It's the same for senior daycare. It's a high priced low wage profit mill for business owners. When I looked into senior daycare, it was $36,000 per year for seniors with dementia. Any job I took had to meet that price plus transportation and taxes just to break even.
I honestly don't know how people can afford children with the high cost of daycare. Someone at work has 3 kids under 5 and I believe they pay $2500 a month, which is cheap. And they have STRICT rules about pickup - you can't be late ever.
My cousin in Sweden just went back to work after his 9 month PATERNAL paid leave - this is after his wife was off for 6 months maternal paid leave.
I think they pay $200 a month for childcare. Here's an article. The Scandinavian countries really foster an environment for raising children - it's like nothing I've ever seen. Of course they pay around 55% of salary in taxes, but who cares?
Our mission is to be a storage unit that provides adult daycare.
R6 it takes a village. You've already met the idiot at R7.
Why should R1 be responsible for her/his children? We owe him/her. The government should set wages and prices. What could possobly go wrong?
This is one of the reasons why so many parents want their kids labeled "learning disabled" or "autistism spectrum disorder." Free preschool. It's considered "therapeutic management."
I'm sure you have to pay a shitload of insurance to run a preschool or a day care for dementia patients. People will sue your ass off for a bump on the head or a bruise on the arm.
So now it's a cult to suggest parents take care of their kids?
R11 if you want to make a point, try not resorting to utter stupidity as "facts"
"Why should [R1] be responsible for her/his children? We owe him/her" is mouthbreathing freeper distortion.
Don't be so fucking dumb.
R9 here - below are the Swedish benefits. You do get a monthly amount from the gvt just for having a child - which could almost completely pay for childcare until they're 5.
Both parents entitled to combined total of 16 months paid leave per child
First 13 months paid at 80% of the parent-on-leave's most recent income, up to ceiling of approximately SEK 440,000 ($68,500, £45,900), rest is paid at flat rate of SEK 180 (SEK $28, £19) per day
Public childcare guaranteed to all parents with most facilities open between 0630 and 1830, with fees capped at 3% of parental income, up to SEK 1260 ($197, £132) a month for first child
Free pre-school for children between three and six, for up to 15 hours per week
All parents entitled to monthly benefit of SEK 1,050 ($163, £109) per child with supplements for large families
Reads R16..."DaMarcus! Lakeesha! Quvenzahahaneneenee! Steadman! Da'Ntreviou$! Eagle Eye! Neneh!Get your brothers and sisters and the gran'babies ready - we're movin' to IKEA"!
Sweden's system is ideal, but unfortunately it will never happen in the US because we don't want minorities to have any benefits.
Gee, r17--wouldn't DaMarcus' mother be on welfare, thus not needing daycare? Or would she just be stealing yo' tax dollars wif some lucrative daycare fraud?
R17, why not Billy Bob, Jolene, Caitlyn and Lurleen? Welfare recipients come in all colors and you went straight for the stereotype.
hence why its better to
a. leave in the projects
b. have a shitload of kids
c. work in burger king and get all the benefits
a ton of asians get benefits too
so why now mae chung, hoi lynn, kekong and dachoy?
Canada has taken a right-wing Libertarian approach to Daycare.
Canada believes that parents are best to decide what childcare options suits them.
So every child gets $100 monthly $100, until the child turns six. That monthly benefit goes directly to the parent.
Canada believes government has no place in the lives of daycare or childcare.
Every family is different, and a one-size-fits-all model of institutionalized daycare does not provide support to the majority of Canadian parents.
Why would anyone expect full time daycare to charge less than a public university?
Public universities get money from the state up front to defray tuition and fees. As as result they charge less.
The model in daycare is to give aid to individuals to defray some or all of the cost. Funds are provided on a case by case basis - not to bring prices down for everyone.
It's a bogus comparison.
