Quoting melindabelcher:

Yes. The biggest thing is absolutely no bottles while your home. no need to introduce a bottle just hand baby and bottle to daycare and go to work.

hm,. while i agree in theory, every baby is different. i had a 12 week old when i worked in a daycare that wanted nothing to do with the bottle while she was with me. not to scare you op. but maybe some kind of happy medium? like maybe arrange a few hours baby can visit the daycare and let them feed her a bottle. i had one mom that came to the daycare for a couple of days before her child started. she stayed in my classroom most of the day. the baby napped and ate and everything while she was there. or, have a family member give a bottle while you are out of the house? good luck. it will all work out in the end.

And if baby doesn't eat in day care it's called reverse cycling. Mom should never give a bottle. Whether they've taken a bottle in the past or not doesn't necessarily influence wether they take one at day care.
If baby refuses bottles care giver can try a different bottle, open cup, sippy cup without the valve, spoon feeding the milk. or baby will just make up for it with mom. It's really not that big of a deal
