There are a couple of options for that. There are several day cares in the area who pick the children up from school and then they have the rest of the day at the day care and parents can pick them up after work.
Another option is that a couple of the day cares provide all day kindergarten with regular curriculum and then kids start 1st grade at the grade school.
I used the after school pick up for my kids and it worked very well. But I know of others who were very happy with the all day option.

Yes it is true. Here is the reason. Homer Glen gets city water in some areas. They receive it from a private company and the bills are higher than other suburbs. I have been told that the bills have to do with the allotment of Lake Michigan water and who it was purchased from. The other idea is that since Homer Glen was not a town at the time the water was acquired, but an unincorporated area, the price was a higher than surrounding towns. There are goods and bads in every town. And there are areas in Homer Glen that have private wells. That is more economical. I have this in my home and we have no problems. We have a reverse osmosis system and our water is clear as crystal. But if you want city water, that is what you pay. You also have fewer city taxes because of this, although the tax rate overall is similar to other areas. But you have virtually no crime. I have lived there for 40+ years and it is a great place to live. If you want to know anything else about Homer Glen, please call me at 888-788-9544. I would be happy to help.... more
In a perfect world the fact that a sex offender lives next door should not affect the price. It does not affect the house itself, and if you go to the sex offender websites, there is virtually a sex offender in every neighborhood practically. Home buyers have every opportunity to research sex offenders and crime rates in the neighborhoods they are looking in, and seldom do they take advantage of this accessible information.... more
