On a side note, anyone have experience with Montessori programs/daycares? I know what I've read online and talking to people within education regarding montessori, but just curious to see if any of the other parents here have gone that route.
I friend of mine has two kids and says daycare costs over 20k/yr

Not at this place. I've already toured about 7 locations and the cost is ranging anywhere from $1250/month to $1900/month. This one falls right in the middle of those two amounts.

I'm happy with the facility, and the teachers etc. and the fact that they strongly incorporate french and music into the curriculum.

If both parents work it is a necessity. Even with full day kindergarten, it starts at 9:00 and kids get off school at 3:00ish and parents don't get home until 6:00.

CG - I don't have any Montessori experience but I am on the board for my local daycare and know a fair bit about that sector if you want to pm me any questions.

I always went to a in house day care, my aunt used to do it, so I went there. It tends to be A LOT cheaper. Also they have after school programs for kids I believe, PLASP is what it is called. Not sure if it starts in kindergarten or just Grade school though

On another note, I already found a few weird things with the new site. There is always 3 pages beside every link, but some of these threads are still on its first page.

Completely necessary as we both work.

We've looked at daycares that are home-based, but there's a bit of a trust issue on that front as it's more of a wild-west format out there.

Once she's able to enter into Kindergarten/Gr. 1 then there will be a grandparent there to pick her up as both my parents will *likely* be retired or working part-time.

They tend to always be like that, It is easier if you know the person personally. But yeah, daycare is expensive. I know some people where they send their kid 3 out of the 5 days. The other two, they go to their grand parents house or something.

Part-time ends working out the same as full-time care. We looked into it and just shook our heads. Plus, not all schools offer it.

To give you an example, one part-time that we talked to was 1795/month and full time was 1825/month. Not significant savings.

Oh, wow yeah it isn't worth the 30 bucks for the extra hassle. Jeez those prices are ridiculous.

Well for the thesis, you have to argue a point. So an easy thesis to argue would probably be something along the lines of "European settlement in N.A. screwed over the Natives".

that is right in line with my MA thesis topic. you could write about how the introduction of the indian act created property rights and this stripped first nations of their cultural centre.

I was planning on make a question regarding the first nations.

For example the Plymouth Colony. I could talk about the impact colonists had on the First Nations people. Property rights etc. I assume would tie into the impact.

I am considering plymouth because it seems safe, number of sources etc. Nothing is set in stone though, i'm working on a proposal.

there's a wonderful modern book called your fyre shall burn no more by jose antonio brandao. it is interesting (although he does not make the points i describe below).


i also strongly encourage you to read the indian act. if you want more original sources, the jesuit relations are an excellent source, as long as you acknowledge the tremendous bias.

here are a few points regarding the iroquois nations:

-property was a communal thing before european settlement. it is impossible to properly negotiate a treaty based on land when the people you are negotiating with don't think of land as something that anyone can own.

-the indian act also made families patrilineal, which is crazy, since family ties in iroquois society were matrilineal.

these two things completely destroyed the core of their social order, eroded family histories and made it impossible for them to compete.

the final straw was the reserve system. first they introduced property rights, and then they removed the societies from being able to participate in that system of ownership. this basically took them right out of the system of free exchange that was being implemented.

those are awesome points trane, I wouldn't have thought about any of those points you listed

seems pretty damn interesting too, I'm about to take a look at the indian act. based on the points you listed it seems like I wont run out of things to say. the list of damage European colonizers did to first natives people seems endless

thanks for the help, I feel some of my anxiety regarding this paper disappearing already. i think i made it out to be harder than it actually is

@ stonezz - Here's something else to read. Not sure how well the argument is made but this woman is making the same points.

The Indian Act: The Social Engineering of Canada's First Nations | Cora Woolsey - Academia.edu


2 more quick points:

-remember that the various first nations were very different from one another. Speak about 1 group or speak about how europeans treated them, at times, as if they were the same. Don't lump them together.

-use some first nations sources.
