Quality childcare is something that I am passionate about. I am blessed to do what I do. Each smile, hug and knowing glance...its absolutely priceless...
In the following link, another home provider explains in her own thoughts why she feels home care is superior to center care. I couldn't agree more...
I want to add that I do know of at least one very reputable preschool that I have and do recommend to my families and families in need of care since I remain full with a waiting list most of the time. I have to give them credit as they are my friends and I have cared for their children as well. The ladies at Tiger Cubs Preschool in Willard do a wonderful job with the children I have sent their way.
However, sadly, the opinion of the blogger in the aforementioned blog has had the same experience that I have heard about from the ladies I have hired in the past from center settings and have heard about from mothers seeking care for their children.
I can also add that I am aware that uncaring individual's performing childcare services for money can occur in any setting whether that is in centers, homes or otherwise. The occurance, in my opinion, of this occuring in LICENSED homes is far, far lower due to the personal expense that the caregiver incurs to run an licensed in-home daycare/preschool. That, coupled with the fact that the in-home provider must PERSONALLY account for ALL care given at his/her home whether good or otherwise. The "buck" literally stops with that provider...not a newly hired, or inexperienced, or just having a bad day "teacher."
A little piece of advice I give to all parents that call me in search of care is this; listen to your heart, listen to your child, you will know the right choice to make.
Life is made of moments...
