    A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME Chicago is in the news today for pushing its free babysitting (pre-school) for kids under the age of three.

    Barbara Abel takes offense when people use the word “baby-sitting” to describe the new infant-toddler program at Chicago Public Schools’ gleaming new National Teachers Academy.

    …[T]he cost of infant-toddler programs is steep and it’s unlikely they’ll be included in universal preschool programs anytime soon. Program costs run about $200 a week per child, says Marsha Engquist, president of the National Child Care Association.

    Yeah, that “free” daycare is costly.
