Christian Day Care!
Hello, I was talking with some friends the other day about this and thought it would be an interesting thing to discuss here.
I am an atheist but I send my son to a Christian day care.
No, on the surface it does not make sense.
But here is why....
1st many day cares in my area are directly christian and most of those who aren't are still run by christians...so I would limit my options by looking for a non-christian day care.
2nd It is a clean day care that teach many non-christian things and the staff are kind and my son likes them.
3rd for day care they dont get into heavy theology more like coloring pictures of Jonah and the Whale and cutting crosses out of construction paper...none of which bother me.
4th it is reasonably priced and close to my house and job so if I need to get to him right away for some reason I am usually no more than 10 mins away.
Some of the people I work with said it was hypocritical to support a christian daycare and send my son to it even though we are not christian...Id like to hear both sides.
PS. he is starting school in a little over a year and I am debating schools, I doubt I will pay to him to go to a Catholic school cause I dont want him to get raped but Baltimore public schools are so bad...the non-religous public schools around here (Gilman ect.) seem to start at $15,000+ a year for 1st grade....we really need a voucher program for education.
