Maybe this riot act community could provide a little bit of assistance for some analysis of the current state of mind and positions for families seeking child care.
Here is a hypothetical for you….
Lets assume for conversations sake, that a new child care facility was going to open in the not so distant future.
Again lets run with the hypothetical scenario that this centre was looking for some feedback on what is important to you as parents in service and facilities available to you and your child/children.
Who would welcome the opportunity to actually have some input?
How many people out there are on “waiting lists” and still have not managed to secure a place?
With such numbers being thrown around like 200 – 400 people on waiting lists… is this actually true…? With new facilities opening up already in 2013 are there actually people still looking for places… is the public to believe the hype of such dramatic shortages in this area?
Are there people who if there was a new service opening up would actually require a place for there child or children?
I would welcome some first hand feedback and information on your requirements and needs for this.
You can private message me if you have information you wished to discuss pertaining to your individual needs and don’t wish to be public. All other general opinions would be fine to post in a public forum if you choose.
NOTE / DISCLAIMER: This is in no way an advertisement for a new centre. This is not a claim that a new centre is opening this year or next. Nor a suggestion that this will happen. In no way is this hypothetical scenario to be taken any other way, other than to promote a discussion on public perception, opinions and circumstances on childcare and individual families requirements for child care, waiting lists, costs and other associated information.
Thanks everyone and have a great New Year 🙂
