Day Care Comments
Greg Weston had a good article regarding the day car debate in this wekend's Sun.
I don't think we conservatives can call the $1200 per year a day care plan, but the incentives for private daycare expansion should be. These two issues should be considered separately in my mind.
Everyone knows that $100 per month per child is not going to be the answer to daycare issues, but nor was the Liberal plan. Lots of new, institutional daycare in large urban centres ignored the fact that most people in need of daycare are commuting from small towns and suburbs, where no new places were going to be created.
I am a strong believer in Early Childhood Education and Learning, but then it should be provided in centres where parents who choose to stay at home can take advantage as well.
