Yes, I majored in Early Childhood Education, taught as an infant-toddler Head Start Teacher and Home Visitor, and now that I have my own precious baby, the thought of sending her to daycare at 1 yo, is very emotional for me, and I am, to say the least very hesitant to do this...I wish there was a different type of support system for working mothers. My work has been extremely generous by allowing me to work form home for 3 days a week. And now that she's older, I need to go back to work at least 3 days a week, possibly 4. I don't really know what I am going to do, as I've looked at family daycare (which is what I prefer, as I don't want my daughter to be a school setting quite yet)...and the programs just do not seem up to par. A part of me wants to setup my own daycare for the next two years until she's older to be in a preschool setting.
