    Trigger warning.

    This is why I am terrified of family daycare.

    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.

    I feel the same way. This is not to say abuse can't happen in other settings but I feel the risk is minimised in comparison to a centre setting.

    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.

    This. FDC can be amazing if you give it a go
