Would you let your 4 month old be taken care of by someone whose first language wasn’t the same as urs?
this is my thinking:
Pros: he has a chance to be bi-lingual (learning Spanish 3 days a week and English at home)
Cons: obvious communication issues, if she tries speaking English to him he may pick up on her broken English
let me say that I haven’t even meet the woman yet so I haven’t made ANY decision, but i was wondering what others thought about this issue.

First I chose to work from home that way my kids wouldn't have to go to daycare. But if I had to put them in daycare then I think it would bother me a little. Yes they will be learning a new language. But then they will be hearing the spanish more than english even though it is only 3 days a week. So I would rather them learn english first. Good Luck!
