Affordable Child care
I would love to see families to able to pay for child care, with no worries ( specially when you have to pay rent , bills ( Gas /Light/ phone bill), gas for your car or even paying for the CTA , Children school supplies , uniform and more . As a parent and FSS I remember back them when I have to look for affordable child care and didn't qualify for child care. My yearly income was approximately $24,000 and my child care cost monthly approximately $900, since I didn't qualify for assistant for child care. I still remember when they told me that I didn't qualify because of my income. It sad to said , but I did struggle financially. Specially , when you don't have other income or support . I manage every single penny in order to able to have my daughter in child care and I was private pay, since I didn't qualify for Assistant. With the cost of living this day and everything going up on price. Families does need affordable child care, so they could go to work with no worries and how they are going pay.
