  • SAHM for the past 14 years... I worked at a daycare/preschool before I had children and I would NEVER send my kids to one of them... We loved all of the kids there, but it was heartbreaking seeing them cry for their parents, and look like they were lost, because they felt abandoned everyday...

  • I was a SAHM- briefly, then found a job that allowed me to work at home. While I was a WAHM I did put my older 2 in daycare 2 mornings a week. It was an excellent center right on the corner near our house my kids had fun with the other kids and enjoyed the preschool program the daycare offered.
