DS who is 21 months, started at long day care for 2 days a week last month. This will increase to 3 days at the end of August.
This week we have also been offered 3 days with a family day carer, who we have met and seems really nice.
We are struggling to decide what to do. Do we ditch the long day care in favour of a more personal ‘home from home’ approach? Or go with the structure and routine of the long day care? I am hoping to be allowed to work from home for the other 2 days a week, but if not, he might have to attend both types of care! There are other people who work from home part of the week (higher up than me though!) with access to our networks to do sensitive work but I am having to go to HR to discuss it as they are being difficult about security of sensitive information issues (I am a child protection social worker).
I’d be interested to hear anyone else’s experiences and how you decided what type of care was best.
