    Does my Child Support Cover Daycare Expenses?

    in Legal

    Illinois orders for child support do not cover every expense that your child will incur. How can that be? What if I have my checks garnished each and every time, why and how could I be expected to pay more? People have to be very careful about this and expectations need to be calibrated to be in tune with the Illinois Courts. This podcast will detail how the judges in Illinois go about making decisions into what expenses the non-custodial parent will have to make in addition to child support. Attorney Pequeno will describe what sorts of debts may be incurred and how the court determines amounts that have to be paid for this.

    The Daycare Business: What Your Baby Is Really Learning From Other Babies

    in Women

    Many mothers choose to put their children in daycare facilities so that they can return to work. Actually, being around other children can be a stimulating and rewarding experience, if the daycare professionals are nurturing, attentive, and skilled in guiding a child through the phases of learning and development. But, if it's just a business of numbers, a head count to rake in money without regard to what environment is created by the presence of the other children, you may want to rethink that daycare decision and find a private sitter. Children learn from other children, and what some parents allow their children to absorb may not be what you want your child exposed to. Daycare: is it good or bad for a young child? What should you look for when picking out a good daycare provider?

    Franchise Interviews Meets with the KLA Schools Franchise Concept

    in Entrepreneur

    KLA Schools is an upscale preschool catering to children three months of age up to age six. KLA schools offers innovative early child care facilities along with a unique approach to early childhood education. The KLA Schools concept is inspired by cutting-edge educational philosophies including the Reggio Emilia Approach.



    KLA is building a world-class franchise organization that sets new standards for excellence within the children's educational services industry.


    Heavy reliance upon the Reggio Emilia Approach provides KLA with a different method than what has become the standard in American daycare and preschool franchises. Many parents who are seeking the best for their children are drawn to KLA's new system and the inspirational design of the schools. While childcare and preschool centers often lay claim to having a superior education program or curriculum, few back up this claim with a concrete, verifiable explanation.  We are meeting with Roberto Ortega, CEO and co-founder of KLA Schools.
