I have to go back to work in January so I've been looking for child care for DS and I've basically hit a wall with it. Which is better? In-home care or daycare centers?It will cost about the same either way I go.
I've visited a couple centers near us and am depressed after seeing nine babies in a room with two workers and all the newborns line up in a row in bouncy chairs. But I love that they have set hours and cant call me at last minute to say they cant watch my baby. I also have the names of three women from my church who watch kids in their homes (in my neighborhood). I love the idea that he will be in a family environment but am worried about the homes not being licensed and I often have to work long hours and dont want to burn bridges with these women that either I know or know people I know.
Which do you think is better?
