    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?

    CDA Plus... Childcare Dollars Accelerator, Plus! A New Professional Journal.

    in Education

    The CDA, or the Child Development Associate, is an important credential for those in the professional childcare space.   Commercial center Directors, and even family child care providers have this credential either because it is mandatory for the job they hold, or as a step towards professionalism and career advancement.


    Childcare is one industry that is here to stay no matter how the economy changes, however, the profitability of this industry is still subject to all the challenges of other businesses, even though demand for this service will never go away.


    Maintaining the CDA credential requires continuing education, and this education opportunity is prolific, but most of what is available surrounds the job itself - how to care for the kids, curriculum, safety, center specs, and more.  Very litte niche specific education and resources exist that talk about money and profitability in this space.  This publication speaks to your personal development as a leader in the industry, and most importantly, to your money.


    The CDA Plus..., The Childcare Dollars Accelerator Plus, is a professional journal recently launched to speak to that need.


    The founding editors are myself, Trudy Beerman, the Lifestyle Upgrades the Debt-Free Wealth Way Money Coach, and veteran CPR/Safety Trainer to the childcare industry; and Nadine Burnside - a 30+ year veteran of the childcare industry, and owner/Director of two commercial childcare centers.


    You know childcare.  Now, let's talk business!   If you are an owner/director in the childcare space, or if you hold the CDA credential, this show is for you.
