Parenting And Daycare

Daycare is a very important part of the lives of thousands of children in the US. Due to the large number of single parents in the US, there is little choice in whether or not children have to attend daycare before they are school aged. Those of us who have the luxury to choose whether or not their child should attend daycare or stay home until kindergarten have a complex decision to make. For me the choice is a no brainer, but others need a little help deciding.

In the first few years of your child’s life they are extremely impressionable. You need to be able to monitor their environment and the things that they are exposed to. The best way that you can do that is to spend as much time as possible with your child. Unfortunately you can’t monitor what happens when you drop your child off at daycare and come back at the end of the day. If at all possible daycare and babysitting should be used sparingly in the early stages of your child’s life.

If you can’t care for your child at home on a full time basis a better alternative to daycare would be to have a nanny. A nanny is a person that will care for your children as if they are their own. They care for your children within your own home usually, and will help you to raise your children the way that you would like for them to be raised. When you are not home you can monitor what goes on within your home by using nanny cams if you feel that it is necessary to use them. If you have chosen a good nanny who is trustworthy and shares your childcare philosophy, then you shouldn’t need to spy on them.

Another great alternative to traditional daycare settings is a family daycare. A family daycare gives your child the experience of being cared for in a loving home and they will get extra personalized attention that they would not receive in a traditional daycare setting.

Ensure the obvious, that the daycare use proffesional cleaning services .Also your child will likely learn more from someone who has the ability to closely monitor their developmental progress in a relaxed setting. All in all, I am sure that whatever decision that you make about how your child is cared for, it will be the right decision for you, your child, and your family.
