Starting to look for childcare - any suggestions?
 
Hi there - I am 15 weeks along and am starting to look into childcare options. My hubby and I haven't decided if we would do in-home daycare or go to a center of some sort. All I know is that it's expensive! I haven't done a lot of research, but other than the listings of licensed care providers in my county, I don't have much to go off of.

Any suggestions or methods that have worked for you in the past? We live in Carver County Minnesota.

Thanks in advance! I need the help!

it depends on the type of atomosphere you're looking for. in highschool i did some volunteer work at a day care CENTER. besides for the babies, its a more structured place that starts learning pretty early. the downside of that is the center's rules can be and are most likely very strict. for example the pick up time. if you're running a tad late, they are more likely to rake you over the coals versus a home daycare where you can make more of a conncetion with the provider.

i have my sons in a HOME daycare. they don't need the education at such a young age, they just need more to be cared for. now that Kale is in preschool, he gets his education there, where daycare is exactly that; projects and play time.

Mine is in a Christian School daycare center and I love it! Just make sure you go and tour, talk with the staff, and some of the parents if you can.
