Night Shift Day Care

Now you can get some sleep
  [vote for,

Many folks work the night-owl shift--10 or 11 PM to 6, 7, or 8 AM.

For a parent, this must be exhausting--working nights, raising children during the day--and especially for single-parents.

Imagine a day-care centre that opens around 10 PM and closes around 8 AM. The centre will be well lighted--to deal with those little body-clocks. Games will be played, playgrounds well lighted--maybe enclosed, and meals served regularly.

At the end of the shift, the parent(s) can pick up the children, take them home, and as the sun is rising, tuck them into bed.

When they grow older, one might have "all-night schools." As traffic is lessened during nights, the greater distance one has to travel to get to such special schools is countered.

       I want day shift night care. I'm on day shift, but there are nights when I need my sleep, because there is an important presentation the next day. It would be great to have someone take care of that little blighter for just that one night.

       Baked. Night-time Care Centres are available. Not nearly as common as daycare, but they're out there. [link]

       I love it! Might make for some very pale kids, but nothing a little fake-tan can't fix. Actually... some UV lights would work perfectly to give them a tan much like the "daytime children" of the rest of the world.

       The only thing that concerns me about flipping the day/night thing with children is that if you ever need for them to be well behaved and manageable during daylight hours they will be irritable and cranky. Adults get this way able to adapt, however, children dont understand that "now is not the time" to have a cry fit or to be whining for candy.
