Subsidized day care 'would give mothers a choice9 By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer Subsidized day care is needed in Lethbndge to provide mothers with a choice a panel discussion at Women s Place was told Wednesday Day Care centres where rates are tied to income are needed where it is economically impossible for the woman to remain in the home and care for her youngsters said pan- elist Dr Barbara Lacey, a leader in the movement for establishment of subsidized day care "It is needed in situations where the woman needs to get oat of the home Dr Lacey continued All we're trying to do is give the woman a choice Some women are better motheis with their children Some are better mothers when they can spend time away from them It is the quality not the quantity of care, that makes the difference A small group of concerned per- sons were on hand to question pan- elists who included Dr Lacey, Ins DuMont, co-ordmator of the Umver- sit) of Lethbndge day care centre, Darlene Nault, the northside day care centre, and Jeanna Baty YWCA director The panelists expressed a definite need for subsidized day care in the citv particularly for mothers who are relying on social assistance and have dependant children It was noted that although there are private centres available, child care rates were generally beyond the financial ability of families who most need the facilities Dr Lacey commented the rate situation is not the fault of those who are operating the private centres It is a matter of economics thev have to charge those rates in order to make it a viable enterprise Although there has been a great deal of opposition in the past trom private centres to centres Di Lacev said she teels both could exist happilv side by side In past several years there has been a lot more interest and awareness in what dav care centi es are trying to accomplish The province is drawing up a set ot stan- dards which will bring together previously scattered bits of legislation It is a necessarv step and although I d hate to see anv ngiditv come into this standards in a single act are needed she Lethbndge is expected have a northside subsidized centre in opera tion by Oct 1, according to Mrs Nault It will be at the Bridge Villa Estate There has been some opposition expressed by Bridge Villa tenants to the use of their community centre tor a dav care program, although the owner is fully in favor Mr1- Nault explained the day care i ate.s will be fixed on a sliding scale and charges will be assessed ac- cording to the individual family's in- come She says some parents would be paving as low as per month while others would be charged as high as The subsidized centres in this city will be taking care of those who can't afford dav care in private centres In the beginning, children will be accepted according to families showing the greatest Dr added In response to a question from the floor concerning the possibility of the local YWCA attempting to find funds for a similar centre, Ms Baty said the YWCA will try again 'The mam problem other than funding, is going to be finding a suitable facility which meets all the government regulations It is reasonable to have all of the precautions required when dealing with children savs Ms Baty "It's just difficult to find a building which can meet all of them or to find one which can be renovated and to find the funds to undertake the extensive renovations Related problems which some parents are encountering in Lethbndge are the lack of tem- porary babysitters and lack of centres which will accept children on a partial rather than a weekly basis Women s Place will present a film session on dav care next Wednesday at 8 p m in the Lethbndge public librarv Oldman irrigation diversion visitors view Lethbndge
