We currently have our baby in a home daycare environment. We have decided to move her to a daycare center starting December 1st as the location is 1/2 a mile from our home, and we liked it the first time we checked it out when I was pregnant, we passed on it because of the cost and we liked the idea of a home daycare.
Please dont tell me she will get sick more in a center, she has been in home care in a VERY clean environment for 5 months now, and has had multiple colds.

I use a day care center and love it. Don't worry about the sick thing. It's good for the immune system. :) I like centers better (not all but in general) b/c there is always someone there (vacations or sick days for the teachers don't matter) and the curiculium is better. It's more structured and geared twoards the age group. You're kids with other kids the same age and skill so they learn from each other. Just my thoughts.

My son attends an in-home daycare. I researched both and visited with various home daycare providers. I'm really lucky to have found Ms. Linda! She has the big day care center feel in a private home setting. She attends college for Child Development courses and credits. She has a schedule in place and the kids get a full day of activity. The older kids learn colors, numbers, shapes, etc. My son is 18 months and he gets to join in on the educational part as well as the just-for-fun part of it all.
I didn't want my son to be going to a daycare that was just going to plop him in front of the television all day. I must say I really lucked out with my lady!
