DD will be 2 in a month and has gone to daycare full time since she was 8 weeks old.
Her daycare is very consistent with their daily schedules. Her current class plays together, does a ton of art projects, does zoo phonics and practices colors, numbers, letters, etc. They sing songs together, have story time, go to the gym to play on cold days when they can't go outside (her DC is in a community center attached to the high school). DD has learned so much there. She already knows half the alphabet, 1-2-3, 5-6 colors, songs, etc.
My biggest requirements are that she is safe, happy, well socialized, and in an environment where she is learning new things daily.
I only work part time and we have inflexible jobs. We chose a part time nanny. She works 730am-7pm two days/week. She has been taking care of kids for years and is great at reading to them, doing arts and crafts, taking them outside, etc. It was $300/week for part time day care and you can't take kids there if they are sick AND they have to be picked up by 6:30pm (which is hard to do for us). The nanny was $308/week to start (we do pay her legally-so there are other fees in addition to her salary).
The nanny cares for them if they are sick! They will start 2.5 hours days twice/week of pre school this Fall (They'll be 3 next month) for the socialization piece.

FTM and our kids are in an in home "daycare". The family that watches them is amish. No electronics and oldschool games/learning. We like to teach the kids but ask what they learned that day. DD will come home counting, singing, and is trying for the alphabet. They show affection and love one another.
