Which do you prefer or would prefer if you put your kids in daycare... a home daycare or a larger facility? What are some questions you'd ask a daycare, what are some red flags to be aware of?
I don't live near family BTW.

I personally prefer a larger center, but I know other moms that prefer home providers. I like not having to plan my vacations around someone else's vacations. Whoever you go with, make sure they are licensed. Go to http://www.childcareaware.org to get more information and find your local referral agency. If possible, I would look at their previous inspection reports; Texas has these online, so it's very easy for me. If they had violations, I look to see what they were. If they are minor (one child's records were out of date), I'm ok with it. If they are major (lack of background checks), I won't even consider the facility.
