And for all you working moms out there with young children...
I teach preschool.  When I taught in Caid, about three years ago, I was
handed an article on children's illnesses that said something to the effect
that children in daycare were sick 50 to 70 percent more frequently than
children who were not in daycare.  In addition, adults in the teaching
profession are sick about 30 percent more frequently than adults in other
professions.  I enjoy teaching my preschoolers, but the longer I teach, the
more convinced I am that young children should be at home with a parent. 
No young child should have to be in day care from before 8:00 in the
morning to after 5 at night.  And, no matter how good a teacher I may be, I
cannot give quality care to six infants at one time - and that is the ratio
in the state that I am in :  adult to children   infants 1 to 6,  toddlers 
1 to 9,  3 & 4 year olds, 1 to 12.  Scary thought...
