Child care (“daycare” and/or “creche”) is the caring for and supervision of a child or children, usually from age six weeks to age thirteen. Child care is the action or skill of looking after children by a day-care center, babysitter, or other providers.
Emotional Stability: Children are children and they do not need to go through the trauma of elderly tantrums, which is more often directed at the innocent child by parents in a state of depression and/or work related stress. A daycare for a few hours provides both the child and the parent a place and time for individual emotion massage. As a child has fun when surrounded by friends doing fun things. “A happy parent equals a happy child”. For some moms, working isn’t an option, but if you think you will be calmer and be a happy mom by returning to work, then daycare might be a good option.
Social Growth: A quality daycare program can spell success in the future, especially places where the teachers know how to handle behavioral problems and where kids are given enough learning and socialization opportunities, stimulation, and affection. Children, who go to day care, will obviously, be used to being around other kids and they’ll be “used to” children by the time preschool rolls around and more importantly will make and experience the meaning of friends.
Health immunity: A child attending a day care is sure to have more infections, but researchers think the immune-system boost from the bugs the child is exposed to may strengthen his immune system, which in turn may protect him from chronic allergies
Structured Routine: When you send your child to day care, you know they are in for a structured day: Play, nap, eat, play and snack. Kids like this and it even improves their brain. Yes, you can instruct the babysitter or nanny to follow a specific schedule, but there are no guarantees it will happen every day. With day care, you know you’re getting this.
Better behavior: Children who are in daycare early on have higher intellectual abilities, especially because they have opportunities for observation, parallel play and socialization. Socialization is one of the biggest benefits of daycare, because kids have to learn how to share, solve problems and be team players. And at a well-run program with teachers who have a strong education background, kids learn to use their voices to solve conflicts.
