My daughter is in daycare during the mornings, ever since she was 2. I work full time and I do not have the time to give her all the attention she needs. The daycare helps with that. She has learned more than I would have been able to teach her as I do not have the qualifications that her daymother has. She is now 4 years old and way ahead of other children her age that does not go to daycare. I have never been sorry about the decision I made. I gave birth to my second daughter on July 6, 2005 and she will follow the same path as her sister. Just make sure that you do your research properly and find a daycare centre that suits the needs of both you and your child. Visit the centre during the day, unannounced and have a looka at what they do, how they treat the children and you will be able to see wether the children are happy or not in a single glance. Don't dany your child a great experience because you are afraid to trust someone else with your child.
