surprised that only a few child
care centers will accept in-
fants. (A child care center, by
Michigan Department of So-
cial Services definition, is a
facility other than a private re-
sidence.)
Among the many centers
listed under "child care cen-
ters" in the North Woodward
Yellow Pages, only Kinder-
care, with 14 licensed centers
in Metro Detroit, offers care for
infants as young as two weeks
old. A few child care centers
will accept children at one year
or 18 months, but most prefer
children who are at least two
years old.
George McInerney, a child
care licensing consultant for
the Michigan Department of
Social Services, urges parents
to choose only licensed child
care centers and monitor their
children carefully. "Parents
are naturally concerned about
their children and if anything
is wrong, like a scratch or if the
child is not eating right, the
parents blame the center. Even
so, there have not been a lot of
substantial complaints in Oak-
land County."
The state outlines licensing
requirements in a 27-page
booklet that includes every-
thing from staff qualifications,
ratio between staff and chil-
dren, equipment, medical care
and immunizations, to nutri-
tion, transportation and sani-
tation. Yet there are still
chronic problems that face
parents using child care cen-
ters. Most common are com-
plaints stemming from a high
staff turnover, inconsistent
communication with parents
and varying discipline and
child care procedures.
Given the choice, many par-
ents choose family (one to six
children) or group (seven to 12)
day care homes. Pat Hanson, a
licensing consultant for the
Michigan Department of So-
cial Services, urges parents to
carefully choose only licensed
homes. "From our standpoint,
anyone not licensed is break-
ing the law. A license is cer-
tainly no guarantee — it's like
having a driver's license. But
we do exercise some measure of
control. We run a criminal re-
cord and child abuse check on

applicants. Within three
months, we visit to inspect
homes, observe and interview.
We also require references and
doctor statements. There is no
fee for being licensed."
Hanson invites parents to
call 858-1612 for lists of
licensed area homes.
Carolyn Moses' name is one
of 30 included on the list of reg-
istered family day care homes
in West Bloomfield and Or-
chard Lake. For 2 1/2 years, she
has operated a group day care
home which allows her and
four other women to care for up
to 12 children in addition to her
own three.
Moses admits she "fell into
the day care business one
summer when my neighbor
needed help," but decided she
enjoyed being around babies
and working with children. "I
always babysat a lot as a teen-
ager and thought I'd have lots
of babies!"
Moses operates her center
with a definite philosophy. She
only accepts children from two
months to three years old.
"Having children on the same
level cuts out a lot of a child's
daily frustration." She also has
a weekly schedule that mixes
full-time children with two-,
three- or four-day children.
"By not having the same mix of
children each day, every day is
a new experience and the kids
and I don't get bored."
Moses attracts parents who
share her parenting values.
She treats children with re-
spect. "I give lots of love, but
foster children's independence
and speak to them without
coddling."
She has successfully hired
four caregivers. "I have found
that moms with school age
children make the best em-
ployees. My hours correspond
to their free time."
Television and junk food are
strictly forbidden. Moses
serves hot breakfasts, which
the children create them-
selves, and hot lunches at least
three times a week. "Even kids
who don't eat at home eat here.
They work up an appetite after
a morning full of activities."
During the day, the children
have the full use of the house.
