We at Greyrock Commons just recently thought about this as part of our Common House design process. After investigating the requirements for licensing, we decided not to go to the effort and expense of building a childcare space to meet all these requirements. To quote from our Decision Log: "Space dedicated solely to childcare will NOT be built into the Common House. Rather, a room will be built that can accommodate a variety of uses. One anticipated use is as a "base" for community baby-sitting such as after-school care for community children. Othe anticipated uses include meetings, project space, informal classes. The romp room WILL be included as initially planned." We will still obviously do "childcare" in the broad sense of the term, just not formal, licensed, "for-pay" childcare. Groups of parents can arrange among themselves to swap child-minding duties, or hire a baby-sitter to take care of a small group of kids in much the same way as we now do during our many planning meetings. Speaking of which, the meetings go on but we're getting closer. Groundbreaking will be in two weeks!! /\ Willie Schreurs /\ //\\ <willie [at] FortNet.org> or <71500.2232 [at] compuserve.com> //\\ ///\\\ Future Home: Greyrock Commons, Fort Collins, CO ///\\\
