Im terrified to put my daughter in daycare. And i think i need advice or words of encouragement. I have no idea what the best route is
I love my daughters daycare. She’s learned so much and has so much fun.
Day care babies learn so much! Our baby is adored, and she has itty bitty baby friends, and they actually teach each other new things they've learned how to do. It's the best.
They really do learn and do so much in daycare. They socialize and make friends, and learn from the older babies. Early learning centers are amazing.
I’ll be honest with you I hate the idea of having my kids in daycare but I don’t have a lot of choice as is the case with most of us. That said, the girls love it. They make friends and have a ball. The key to me is to research, talk, ask, listen, and observe. Find the one that works for you and give it time to work. Just make sure to communicate with the employees.
I can understand that you are worried and it is a big step, not just for your child but also for you.
Us as Daycare providers we have to take part of workshops, fulfill license requirements and do background checks to make sure the kids are in a safe environment.
I would recommend to always do research on Daycares you are considering. You can also call licensing to ask if there were any issues before.
If you look at Daycares, tell them your concerns and I am sure they will understand and tell you what they are doing to provide incidents. (At least that's what I am doing as a provider)
It is very beneficial for your child to be enrolled in a Daycare. The children learn so much from each other. That's something they can only learn in the interaction with other children. Especially socials skills and problem solving skills.
Good luck with you decision
