I have a nice home near the creek. My raft is large enough to fit 6 children comfortably. Let me know if you're interested. The kids really enjoy the creek. Its like a cheap water park.
I will work for a case of ice cold Miller Lite a day.

Baaaa Baaaaaa, I used to give goat rides on my back, But That mean lady in the paper refused to save my life. Now i am in a blue barrel with Jimmy Hoffa. Good luck on the rafting with peanut the clown. I would wait though for the next big rain. The current is faster and I think the Nlfd will launch their boat too.

I have two children that use daycare and they average $150 a week for full time at home sitters.

I watch two kids in my home and charge $225 a week. They are 3 months and 3 years old. The day cares near use would be $400 for kids that age, I called before I gave a price so I knew what to charge.

I pay 402 a week at a Daycare (two kids). And I also have to pay when they are not there. Sometimes when you have care in someone's home they don't make you pay when your kids are not there but at the daycare I have to save the spots.

Who is whinning? Someone asked a question and we all answered it. I didn't hear any complaining just the facts. Why do people like you always have to start something where there is nothing? Just bored?

Who is whinning? Mom looking for help asked a question and people gave her their answers and the facts. No one complained they just stated the facts. Who are you to tell anyone how to live? You have no idea about peoples situation. My husband died 2 years ago I don't have a choice. But I don't judge people about their choice. Go somewhere else a@@.

Is Aunt Nancy's the one held through LWC? If so I heard it is great. I don't know much about the others. My kids go to Kid Country in Manhattan. It's fine as far as day care goes.

Mary Sears I've heard kinda iffy things about from a few different people.

Building Blocks k/n/a Kindercare is great. My son went during his kindergarten year, and I loved it. The director has been there about 30 years. If my husband gets a new job that isn't close to the in-laws who currently watch my daughter two day s a week, I will be enrolling her at Kindercare.

Haven't heard anything about La Petit since it's so new (I remember seeing ads for teachers in the paper).

Someone told me they liked Aunt Nancy's too, but didn't elaborate.

All I hear are negative things about Mary Sears, they hide children in the closet, when over the limit. You can't just pop in and check on your child, the staff wears dresses, how can they get on the floor to play with your child?
Building Block is a very good day care, I used to work there and 2 of my children went there and also my grandchild.
There is another one called Tiny Treasures by Frosties, which my grandson went to, they seem very good.
And if you can go to Frankfort, there is a day care called Childrens Country Club, they are excellent. My daughter went there.

All I can say about one in New Lenox you mentioned strongly and I mean strongly encourages children to eat everything on their plate at lunch whether they want to or not. I know someone who worked there.(It's not the one on IL Hwy.)

That's very sad, I love children and don't like to hear that kind of stuff. I think that is a form of abuse. It doesn't hurt to have them try a little of everything on the plate, but to force them, that upsets me.

I worked for DCFS a few years back And I had to go in to mary sears to pick up 2 kid. They wouldn't let me. I had to call the police to have the kids removed. I allso know a teacher that worked there as a temp job. She left and is now a teacher at Lincolnway. The things she told me I'd never bring my kids there.
