For many working moms, finding affordable, good quality childcare can be a significant challenge. For me, in 2001, it didn’t make sense for me to go back to my teaching job, while paying over half of my salary for childcare. Luckily, I found other ways to be a work-at-home-mom, but that scenario is impossible for some.
A gem, tucked in Sugar Grove, there is a wonderful option for an affordable, 5-star childcare facility! Sugar Grove Developmental Day School (SGDDS) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, licensed to provide daycare 5 days/week from 7 AM to 6 PM, to 44 children: infants (8 weeks) through kindergarten. SGDDS is the only non-profit daycare in Watauga County, a 5-star Daycare. A Developmental Daycare will follow these general guidelines; 50% of the children need to be typically developing and as many as 50% can be ‘at risk’. (‘At risk’ is defined as adopted, abused, learning disabled, developmental delayed or from a home that is below the poverty level.)
Many moms will say, “I don’t qualify for daycare assistance, but I still can’t afford it.” Well, SGDDS is for you! They are funded by the United Way and many other generous donors, and they offer a sliding scale of fees, based on your income! Yes, even if you don’t qualify for government assistance.
