While East Blai is technically not a coho, who's counting? We have a child care proviso for assiting parents, particularly singles, to achieve our meeting requirements--couple committee, a general membership, a couple work parties. Either the coop hires a pair of providers for large meeting or a member can get meeting or work party credit respectively for providing care at the committee level, or where needed, individuals can get reimbursed for a sitter. when a cooper provides care, it is suggested that they don't do that as their only means to get meeting etc. credit and new members are asked to attend rather than provide. Though the quote, "It take s a whole village to raise a child" may be on the verge of trite, it is none the less our long standing motto. We (you included)care about community and so eventually see this next generation respnsibility as one to be shared.
