Have your LOs ever been in daycare?

My first was in daycare from 10 months-23 months while we were recovering from my husband's year long lay-off.  I had to work to help get us off the assistance we were on when that happened. Thankfully she was able to attend where I worked, got a 50% off discount, was only there for 2-3 times a week and not full days.

I tried working in a daycare for two months when my children were 3 and 8 months, and they would come with me to work and I would work in their rooms, but I quit after two months.  I've been home since and don't plan on working.

My kids are now 4, 2, and 4 months. :)

No yet..I'm scared..lol I want for them to socialized with children their age...but I haven't found a daycare with web cameras by my house where I can see them when I want to... I guess once my son is 8 months I will get a baby sitter for both my daughter and him so i can finally work again! by then my daughter will be 2 1/2 years old

My daughter was in head start for 2 years but it was so much more than daycare to me. She had real teachers and learned so much. My son has never been in daycare and will never have to be, he was in Pre-k last year at our school here ( we have one ) and next year kindergarten all day!
