I dont want any arguments or anything but I was just curious as to why some people look at childcare as something bad. The children learn, they do arts and crafts, they get to socialize, they get breakfast, snack and lunch so I dont understand why people say "I dont want someone else raising my child". (I saw someone post that which is why I ask).
My daughter has been in childcare since she was 2 months old. I didnt want to put her in that early but I had no choice since I had to go back to work to pay the bills. But I love her daycare. She will be 2 on thursday and has been at the same daycare. My daughter is really smart and advance and loves going to school in the morning. She is the only child so her being at daycare lets her play with other children and do fun things.
Im a teacher and I personally just dont see whats so wrong with it. If I could have stayed home I probably would.

I am a preschool teacher and I teach 2 year old's but I have also worked with all of the ages in some way or another. I do not feel that I am raising someone elses child. Yes, I do guide them and teach them, but I also get to hand them back over to their parents at the end of the day. I personally feel that the parents and I work together as a team. They let me know about what is going on at home, and I let them know what is going on at daycare. By doing that, their child is receiving the best care, guidance, and learning they can possible receive. If anything the phrase- It takes a village to raise a child- is what comes to mind, however, I am not single handedly raising them myself. The only child that I completely raise is my son. Not sure if this really makes sense, but it is the way I feel.
