Rodia's Motherly Touch Child Care NFP is a Non for Profit Organization home-based business that provides day care services throughout the south suburban Chicago land area. The company is Licensed by the State of IL. Department of Children and Family Services DCFS.
Rodia's Motherly Touch Child Care NFP currently provides child care services to children from 6 weeks to 12 years old. It is our mission to provide excellence in the daycare and enhance the lives of children. it is our vision to support children's cognitive, social, emotion, physical, linguistic and cultural development.
This is accomplished by utilizing age appropriate learning activities to support our mission and vision. I have several parents that prefer a home-base Day Care rather than a Day Care Center. Parents and children deserve to have optional childcare services.
I appeal the Code Violation: Article 5(d) Particular Home Occupational Prohibited. The following uses, by the nature of the investment or operation, have a pronounced tendency, once started, to rapidly increase beyond the limits permitted for home occupations, and thereby substantially impair the use and value of a residentially zoned property for residential purposes.
A DCFS regulation specifically addresses the child ratio: to square footage concern in the above mentioned sanction. Therefore Home Day Care Providers whom are State Licensed should automatically be considered for Business Licensing within the Village of their operation. Upon receiving a license from the State Article 5: would not be a concern or poses any potential threat to negatively impact the value of the community. In fact it encourages the value to the community in providing optional child care services for hard working parents who desire Daycare vice Commercial Day Care Centers.
I demand that the Planning and Zoning Commission allow Rodia's Motherly Touch Child Care NFP to apply and obtain a business License to operate this organization.
