Quality Child Care Is Out Of Reach For The Majority Of Vermont Families, Report Finds

Talk to any parent with young children or infants and you’re likely to hear one common complaint: It’s really hard to find the right place, person and time to have their child looked after while they’re working. Now a new statewide report confirms that this is more than a legitimate gripe.

The report finds that the vast majority of families in Vermont don’t have access to quality child care.

Daycare More Expensive Than College in New York, Study Finds

Daycare More Expensive Than College in New York, Study Finds

Parents in New York may be dipping into college savings for their kids much earlier. They may have to use the savings to pay for daycare before that child even heads to elementary school.

A study recently released by the Economic Policy Institute reported that New York is one of 33 states where infant care is more expensive per year than in-state tuition for a 4-year public college.

New York is ranked fourth out of 50 states and the District of Columbia for most expensive infant care.

We need to care about child care

Posted May. 31, 2016 at 2:01 AM

With summer just around the corner, many of the Cape’s working parents are focusing on child care and how to pay for it. We all have a stake in this issue: These parents need to earn as much as possible in the summer in order to pay their bills year round; employers need their workforce; and we all need the services they provide. But even though we all know our working population is abandoning Cape Cod, leaving us with a growing older population and a shrinking proportion of working parents raising children, we tend to forget that child care is a major challenge for families trying to earn a living on the Cape.

Some Great Daycare Lunch Ideas For Your Toddlers by LCSH Brookline Ma

Some Great Daycare Lunch Ideas For Your Toddlers by LCSH Brookline Ma

What to lunch to pack for daycare by Joey Mallari

My daughter goes to daycare 5 days a week and about 8 hours a day. She is a growing girl and I try to give her a much-needed calorie while she is in school. I usually wake up around 6 am to prep her lunch for the day. For the past couple of weeks, she’s been loving clementines. We always buy a five-pound bag from Wegmans when we do our food shopping on Sundays. I peel them and packed them up on one of her containers. Depends on the size of the clementine but two or three is usually the magic number.

Apples is a hit or miss for my daughter. There are days that she will eat all the apples a pack her and some days she wouldn’t even touch them. Sun Butter and Jelly Sandwich is my go to sandwich. If we are at home that will be peanut butter and jelly but if send it to her school. I will usually sun butter or almond butter as a replacement.

Since she was a baby she always enjoyed frozen blueberries and Greek yogurt. But that container always comes home empty every day.

Organic blueberry waffles from Wegmans are usually her breakfast when she gets to school. But she will eat a fruit or a smoothie while we are getting her dress in the morning.

Friday is usually their Pizza Friday in school so I didn’t make any pasta dish on the video.

For the past month, she asked us to buy some applesauce for her lunch. I guess some of her classmates bring it to school and she wanted one for herself.  The cheese stick is just when she wants a quick bite and she can walk around with it.

Pre-k advocates seeking funding increase in Alabama

 

Pre-k advocates seeking funding increase in Alabama

Increased state funding for pre-k programs has allowed Slocomb Elementary School to offer a pre-k classroom for the past two years, allowing local four-year-olds to get a better start on their education. Early childhood education advocates are pushing for increased funding next year, which will allow the program to reach more students.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to prepare children for kindergarten,” Slocomb Elementary School Principal Barbara Greathouse said.

Allison Muhlendorf, executive director of the Alabama School Readiness Alliance, said her organization’s Pre-K Task Force is recommending increasing the budget for state-funded pre-k programs by $20 million.

Alabama has one of the best-regarded pre-K programs in the country, but it only provides services for about a fifth of eligible four-year-olds. The program is delivered through public schools, private day cares and religiously-affiliated organizations. The Alabama School Readiness Alliance has advocated for increases for the past few years and has gotten them. The organization has a 10-year plan to gradually increase funding until all eligible students are covered.

State Rep. Donnie Chesteen visited Slocomb Elementary School on Monday and said he supports increasing funding for pre-K. Chesteen said funding for education this year is likely to be better than it has been in several years and that the Legislature is looking at adding $50 million to the education budget, hiring about 475 new teachers and giving a 4 percent raise to educators making less than $75,000 and a 2 percent raise to those making more than $75,000.

“I can’t think of a better investment than continuing to increase funding for first class pre-k,” he said.

Slocomb’s current pre-k classroom accommodates 18 students. The class fills up quickly and additional funding could allow the school to open another.

Pre-k classrooms are taught by a highly qualified teacher and aide. Sarah Jones is the teacher at Slocomb Elementary.

Jones said the pre-k program helps acclimate students to school, giving them the social and academic skills they need to prosper.

“A lot of them haven’t been around other kids, they’ve been at home or with grandma,” she said.

Jones said the program has a real impact on students’ performance once they reach kindergarten. Research appears to support this claim.

Figures from the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education, Public Affairs Research Council of Alabama and other organizations show that Alabama First Class Pre-K alums consistently do well in kindergarten and outperform their peers in reading and math and are less likely to repeat a grade.

Brookline Marijuana Dispensary Next To Little Children School House Is Now Open For Business

NETA Marijuana Dispensary Next To Little Children School House Daycare Is Now Open For Business

The new dispensary is located inside the old Brookline Savings bank not too far from the Boston/Brookline border.  Many of the dispensary’s customers have been lining up before the doors even open. Inside you will see there is a lounge area where new marijuana clients can review the marijuana menu. Although the prices are not listed on the menu. I believe there is a Massachusetts law where the dispensaries cannot post pricing. Marijuana clients can only hear about the marijuana prices when they are called in to the counter and presented the numerous marijuana options.

The marijuana dispensary in Brookline Massachusetts is by appointment only. No marijuana clients  cannot enter this facility without an appointment.  Once the marijuana buyer is called in to the counter. They will be presented numerous options of marijuana with different strains of THC. Although there is no set guidelines on what strains does best with patient’s diagnosis.  Many times marijuana clients experiment with different type of marijuana strains  to figure out what works for them.

According to the states tally of marijuana patients have grown dramatically.

October 2014 they were less than 2000 total active patients and 2000 certified marijuana patients.  Fast forward to January 2016 Massachusetts now have 24,000 certified patients and 19,000 active marijuana patients.
