A lot of childcare providers I've met in life came to the same conclusion and went into the childcare business while their own children were young so they could find a way to balance childcare costs with working to bring in income. Without the assistance of government or tax dollars, they found a solution that worked for them, their neighbors who needed childcare and also expanded the local economy. It's a win-win that actually produces better "dividends" for our nation.
Cal, I haven't been a libertarian since Andre. As for your example of Home Childcare? I guess I'll have to take your word for it.
