I'm with you @BigRedV. Not saying kids can't be abused in traditional daycare, but it is much harder for it to happen without notice. I trust *no one* with my children, I mean *no one*, not even family gets to *mind them* I use traditional daycare. I have had some personally horiffic experiences and would not put my child in a situation anything similar could happen.
I think the free range parenting of the 70's and 80's is made out to have been great for all kids and their development etc, but I can tell you for me and a lot of my friends, it was almost an open invitation to every cretin alive.

BigRedV you've just reinforced my fear of FDC! My brother went to one when he was little and it was great but I just can't bring myself to trust anyone other than our daycare centre. We've been using them since 2008 and bub number 3 will be starting next year. Lots of the staff are still the same as when my eldest started. I'm terrified of FDC for exactly those reasons in the article.

I went to family day care as a child, I then worked in child care as an adult and now as a mother my daughter goes to family day care.
I personally feel more comfortable with her in a home environment with a smaller amount of kids and just one carer.

I have full faith in FDC. One of my close friends does it. I would love to get both our kids into it. (But being so close is age it's hard). When we lived in rural qld I loved it. She would pick the kids up (so lovely of her because I don't drive).
They attend a centre and I love our centre. Now I'm so in love I will be upset to max when we actually have to leave!

You're gonna find ****ty carers at daycare centres and FDC.
But you're also going to find absolutely amazing carers at both.
I think it really depends on what you feel comfortable with and what your child needs.
