Pbb parents, daycare and activities time question

Am I the only one that has to deal with day care or your child needs to be picked up by 5:30? I mean how the hell do people do it I'm always barely making it there because I have to leave work early to get there by 5:30. And then my wife wanted to start our daughter and dance this year but the dance class starts at 5:30. How the hell am I going to get my kid picked up Home dressed and dropped off in time for that?

One of my biggest pet peeves in the buisness world.

How the hell do you maintain a publicly open/walk in buisness with hours that are exactly the same as the standard work day of your clientel? Wtf!?

I hate that shit. The shop i ran we opened @ 7am and closed @ 6pm, and would routinely arrive ealry/leave late to assist customers schedules.


Supply places that are primarily account and workday related i ha e no issue with.

My new job i work till 5 but it takes @ least 1hr+ to get home or anywhere else that i need to get shit for home, and theyre all closed @5

Our old daycare was a 730 drop off and 5:30 pickup and it was horrible! I was in the same boat having to leave work 15 minutes early every day and still barely making it. We switched to a different daycare that opens at 6am and closes at 630pm so now I have the ability to stay late at work if needed. Costs an extra $50 a week but it allows us an extra 2.5 hours a day to get things done if needed so it's more than worth it.

Ours is 6, but both of us have decent flexibility that one can drop off and the other picks up.

My son's youth football practice starts at 5pm and they tell parents to have the kids there 15 minutes early.

How is taking your children to daycare not raising them yourself?? Kinda hard to raise children without any money and I don't know any jobs that are cool with you taking a kid to work everyday!

Don't you ever get tired of being wrong? Those kids have a perfectly fine seventeen year old sister that could pick up his kids, ...after she cleaned the house and prepped everything for dinner.

Nope. She's too busy working the street corner.

Always look at the money. They don't just leave your kid if you don't make it by 5:30. They set the time at 5:30 because they know people cannot make it by then. What are the late pickup fees?

Been a very long time since we had to deal with it, but you're a parent - you make adjustments to your work schedule. That is how I wound up working 6-3 20+ years ago and still pretty much stick to that schedule even though the youngest is now 17.

I think it's the other way around...they have to make it expensive or they would have people's kids till 10 o'clock at night.

Piggy response - don't like you're daycare hours find a new daycare.

I thank God we always had a Filipina around to watch ours for $100 a week.
With flexible pick-up.
No big deal when they can't drive and have a baby/toddler of their own to take care of.
Plus we make lunch bring a gallon of milk and a sack of rice a week.
Now I thank God for Pre-K 3.

my wife ended up staying at home doing internet based work part time to make ends meet (like a couple hundred bucks a week) instead of dealing with day care. In the end it turned out to be only slightly different actual cost wise.

prior to that, we had a family friend watch my daughter when she was really little, until she started getting too demanding and decided we should be paying her for her vacation days and the kid's sick days she didn't watch her.

once the kids (2 of them now) got a bit older in grade school, we started sending them to the boys & girls club after school, they had a bus that took the kids right there after school. Cost all of $100/mo per kid if I remember correctly, and they were open late enough that it wasn't an issue.

It was practicaly a push when we decided mine were going to daycare. My wife was able to stay home for 6mo when they born. They went for 2 days, her dad or sister would watch for 2 more days, then she had fri off.

Worked great for about a year and we bumped them up to 3 days. Eventualy her dad had some health issues and they go 4 days now.

For as much as they are there its pretty cheap, like $5hr each.

We had to make it a priority to find areas where we could afford for one of us to stay home with the kids. It took a LOT of research and luck to find a place each time we moved, and at one point moved to rural Tx. for work and affordability. but we were always able to keep the kids in good schools and have one of us there with the kids at all times.

Sometimes it meant driving over an hour each way to get to work, but we did it. right now, we're pretty comfortable up in the mountains with the kids in a fantastic school and living on one income. My Wife ended up with a job that pays better than the one I had, so I'm staying home with the kids until I can find something that will work around their schedule.
