Sending Your Child to Daycare vs. Hiring a Babysitter

August 31st, 2016 watchmegrowdaycarecenter

There comes a time in most every mother’s life when she has to decide whether or not to send her little one to daycare or else hire a babysitter. While both have their strengths, overall it makes sense to enroll a child in daycare for the socialization aspect.

Daycares offer a structured environment for children. There will be some rules children will have to follow, but also play time where they can be silly and have fun with other children. Daycare centers typically help teach children about various subjects, often following a curriculum. When you send a child to a licensed daycare center with fully trained staff, you can have peace-of-mind that your child is safe and in good hands, surrounded by trustworthy adults.

Daycare vs Babysitting

Leaving your child with a babysitter means he or she will be the sole focus of that adult. Some adults are better at caring for children than others. Inexperienced babysitters may spend too much time on their smartphone when they should be looking after your child, and they may or may not be mentally prepared for certain situations that arise. To top it off, hiring a babysitter will likely cost more than sending a child to daycare.
