Ironic that those who did not want QRIS finally agreed when promised they would be rewarded for their hard work* by being reimbursed over time at the higher tier rate.

*aka, make up financial losses taken on buying all the mandatory extra supplies from the States approved retailer lists.

I do not know why my state has to be the leader of the pack in these changes.
So far we have only been told of food pattern requirement changes and KidKare of course but there has been NO talk of changes in claiming a child etc...

When I enroll a child, I am reimbursed from their first day forward. As for Tier I or Tier II, I guess the way I look at that is that ANY tier is helpful and since the food program only supplements my food expenses verses covering them, I am happy to get what I get.

You are exactly right, if I understand correctly, it is possible when the new rates go into place, they will be smaller than what we are getting now. Just another move to push us out of business.

She sees it because she was a provider.

I think that is where the divide is... every one at the state level has never worked in the field so their concept of changes in this business aren't the same as our views.

My food rep is awesome too! I used to have a horrid one but found a fantastic one a few years ago and love her!

On a side note, I like the changes coming with the food program. They are giving so many more options (at least in areas I had issues with) that I like the changes that will come in October. KidKare...No comment. We aren't even discussing it here. yet.

lovemydaycare0912 That's awesome! I love mine too. She is actually a current home daycare provider as well so she definitely gets it.

Rockgirl I love mine! I'm actually happy to see her when she shows up. I've had the same rep for 13 years--we've gotten to know each other!

Missjaime I really like mine too. She's funny and kind and its nice to have an adult visitor who understands that sometimes kids are nuts!

daycare Want to trade. My kids really really dislike mine, and I can't say I'm a fan either.
You hit the jackpot there.

Baby Beluga I agree, it is awesome! Sounds like you have a gem

Cat Herder That is awesome to hear.

Josiegirl She came today and is so easy to talk to She used to be a provider herself so is very understanding about all the 'crap' we go through We talked about all the new regs. and she said so much of it is BS.
Then she asked if I was going onto KidKare soon and I said no, and I was thinking of dropping the food program because of it. She ended up guiding me to KK and showing me how easy it is to use. I said 'yeh, but I've heard people have lots of problems with it.' She said they've worked some of the kinks out and since I would only be using it for submitting my claims, I shouldn't have any problem with it.
Then we just shot the breeze for another 20 minutes. It's so nice to have an adult from the dc world who is reasonable, friendly, understanding and not someone who makes me shudder with fear when I see their face in the front window.
