Holy child care gouging, Batman!

Posted on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 1:35 PM

I am looking for day care for when my mat leave ends, and holy shit, it's unbelievable! Day cares don't want part-time kids, which is what I need, and top of that, they charge a shit load for your "services." It doesn't cost me a grand per month to look after my kid, so why do they need that fee? I thought standard day care was $25.00 per day, not 40, 50, even 60 dollars or more! Day care costs more than mortgages, it's unbelievable. This costs more than my (and most people I have talked to's) mortgages! What the hell!? So, I try to suck it up and look for better employment, and that's not easy, either (but that is a bitch for another day.) How the eff do single income parents afford this? Respect to those who can pay for this! I once read an article nearly a year and a half ago about the cost of child care in this province. This article was explaining the need to need to make child care more affordable, and the possibility of opening ten and seven dollar per day centres, and free sites, where possible. So, where are the affordable child care facilities.....guess we can't provide those now, we have an unnecessary convention centre to pay for. Man, this province is fucked. —Help Wanted
