Culturally, a nanny is seen as superior to a daycare. Don’t let yourself be fooled by this construction. There are excellent nannies out there – and thousands of incredible daycare centers. In our last few blogs we have discussed the advantages of daycares over nannies as well as realistic considerations to make when trying to decide if daycare is right for you. We believe knowledge is power, and we want you to have what you need to make the best decision for your child. Today, we have some more insights for you to consider.
Daycare Advantage: Resources
Good daycares provide a massive array of toys, books, and other resources that your child will not get at home with a nanny. Whether it’s educational games or art supplies, a daycare is equipped just for your child. Even better, daycares often bring in experts to enrich the experience. This can be an incredible advantage for your child!
Daycare Consideration: Your schedule
Daycares have specific closing times, and if you get stuck in meetings all the time, this could present a real struggle. You’ll end up paying a lot of late fines, which can take a toll on your budget. It can also be difficult to arrive home with your child – you both will be tired and wanting to get settled, which is no easy task when you have a little one!
At the end of the day, you need to know your child is in good hands. We have good news: our pre-kindergarten center in Arlington is here to offer incredible care for your family. Come in for a visit today!
