I am about to go back to work in 4 mths and am debating whether to choose a child care centre or a family day care for my 19mth old, wondering what some opinions on this are?

  • I think you will just know which is best when you visit each of the centres.


  • I have had my boys in both and I found the centre good but the family care a lot more relaxed and happier. I would much rather be picking up happy boys and not feel so rushed and like a number.


  • We chose childcare. There are pros and cons of each. Make a list of what those are for your family and go from there.


  • you just have to pick what right for you


  • You will have made your choice by now. The best way is to visit the day care centres and day care mum/s to see what they can offer your child, how well the children interact with staff etc. Some mums don’t get a choice as there could be limited places available. Also, ask other mums you know for feedback/recommendations.


  • I hope you are happy with the choice you made


  • It’s such a personal choice…


  • what did you end up choosing?


  • I would visit both and see which you prefer


  • Which did you end up choosing?


  • What did you end up choosing?


  • For me I would prefer the family day care.


  • I agree visit both to see what they are like


  • I’d be inclined to visit both and see which I like more


  • My son went to chidcare since he was 3 months and he loves it. They have lots of fun there.
