i don't think i'll be sending Eve to any time of outside-of-my-family care until she can walk and talk. and by "outside-of-my-family" i mean "my parents, Nate, and my grandparents". i am going to be very picky and borderline offensive with who's allowed alone, unsupervised, with my daughter.

fun fact: i'm recycling my babysitter as well as my pediatrician she said she'd watch Eve at the rate she watched me for, which is considerably cheaper than her current rates.

Another good question is how do they handle illness. Meaning, do they send home for just a runny nose or diarrhea or what criteria do they have for sending home? And if your child is sick where do they put them while they wait for pickup?

If you are doing in-home daycare how many infants will they take. I didn't want any day care with more than 1 infant at a time.
