Yes she my FDC lady ended up buying a can thing and would drive ds around which I was rather uncomfortable about. I found it was not much cheaper aswell.
If u get a good DCC then they don't generally let ur kids cry. As of this year in qld they have lowered the number of children per teacher. My DCC is swamped with teachers, helpers, etc. I guess that's why my kids rush to go to Kindy and half the time don't say good bye because they are comfortable knowing all their needs are met.
It's personal choice really. It depends greatly on the DCC or the FDC and also on your child. Check them all out. Turn up when they least expect it aswell so they are true to what they say. I have heard of a FDC where my friend kept noticing the carer was on fb all day. You will get good ones and you will get bad ones. Goes with all of them. They all look perfect on the day you go check them out cause they want your business. Take your inspector googles along and check what the kids are doing, how they feel, the surroundings, safety etc. hope this helps
