Hi all--I used to lurk/post more on here a couple of months ago. My family moved in June and I've been a SAHM since mid-June. Prior to that, DD was in a daycare center.
She's going to be starting at an in-home daycare on September 4. I really like the daycare, and it's a better option for us for several reasons. But I have no experience with in-homes (except for my MIL reminding me that DH went to a home daycare and he turned out fine!) so I need some reassurance It's one woman (primarily) in her house. She does have back up if needed who can come in, but it's pretty much just one lady and 6 kids (although when DD starts there will probably be 3 or 4, because most of her current kids are leaving to start school in Sept). I never even looked at home daycares before because I wanted the accountability of a center, so I'm surprised at how much I liked this option.
So...I guess I just need to hear some positive stories and all the reasons you love your home daycare. TIA!
