The Top 3 Pros and Cons of Daycare Centres

There are many childcare options available, for example daycare centres, home daycares, nanny care, preschool, relative care and stay-at-home-parenting. Here’s a list of The Top 3 Pros And Cons Of Daycare Centres, which I hope will help you decide if daycare centres are for you. Let me know what you think!


* Better qualified staff. Childcare staff normally hold qualifications in childcare and/or first aid, in addition to having years of experience. This enables them to better care for your child’s needs, keeping him/her happy while also nurturing growth and development.

* Structured learning environment. A good daycare centre will provide a proper curriculum for your child. Methods vary from daycare to daycare, but should include age appropriate activities like baby signing, sand-play, finger-painting, etc. These activities are designed to fully engage your child in a manner that will encourage growth and development while also enabling him/her to simply have fun.

* Opportunities to socialise. One of the key benefits of daycare centres compared to options like relative care and stay-at-home-parenting is the chance for your child to mix with other children and adults. Social interaction can be very enjoyable for your child, while also helping develop communication skills, confidence and a sense of self. It’s also very heartwarming to witness your child sharing something or comforting another child who is upset.


* No one-to-one attention. Daycare centres will assign each member of staff to several children. Unsurprisingly, there is research which suggests that a one-to-one environment is better for very young children. As children get older, the staff to children ratio generally increases (for example Math Monkey sets a maximum ratio of 1:6), but you should always favour daycare centres that keep their staff to children ratio as low as possible.

* Many many many germs! Daycare centres can be a great place for germs to breed. Despite various precautions, illnesses will commonly spread among children and even staff members. Furthermore, few daycare centres will provide special care for sick children.

* Picking up bad habits. Young children will imitate almost everything they see or hear. As such, you can look forward to your child bringing home delightful habits such as biting, throwing objects and being disruptive for the sake of attention. In the worst case scenario, left unchecked these challenging behaviours could turn into a child behaviour problem!

How do you feel about daycare? Know anybody who sends their kids to daycare? Ask them what they think! Unfortunately, sometimes both parents have to work, making daycare a necessity rather than an option.

Senior Airman Deirdre Jones is a Public Health Technician assigned to the 60th Medical Group’s Sanitation and Food Safety Office was named Travis AFB’s Warrior of the Week for the Week 12-18 June 2016. Some of SrA Jones accolades include steering the base’s 67 Million Dollar Food Safety Program, oversaw CYP vaccination compliance for the three base daycare centers, POC for the unit’s Bone Marrow Drive were she lead seven flight representatives making one hundred percent contact with the squadron’s personnel . She received the Warrior of the Certificate and the Wing’s Coin from Colonel Joel Jackson, Commander 60th Air Mobility Wing. SrA Jones also selected SrA Rachael Hilliard as someone who as a significant influence on her career since being assigned to Travis AFB. SrA Hilliard is also a Public Health Technician assigned to David Grant Medical Center received the Chief’s Group Coin presented by Chief Master Sergeant Alan Boling, 60th Air Mobility Wing’s Command Chief, for her influence on SrA Jones and being a great Wingman.
Senior Airman Jones
In her own words stated:
I was asked how I feel about winning Warrior of the Week, along with how I feel about my job and work environment as a whole. To be completely honest, I think earning such an award provides a deeper reason to keep striving for greatness and seeking more mentorship and guidance. This past year alone has honestly been the absolute most difficult time of my life and career, ranging from the birth of my first child, the death of my mother of 43, and having been placed in a leadership position during that time with little experience, and overseeing a peer that had the epitome of an opposite personality than that of my own. That Airman, SrA Rachael Hilliard, stuck next to me through these difficult times and never gave up hope that we can both succeed, given the resources that we had. As a result from that, I have gained more resiliency than I thought I could with the constant guidance from my mentor and supervisor, TSgt Crystal Goff. I have done more growing as an adult and as an Airman this year because of those two individuals.

This is from January 7. My school’s flour project began today. That means that my flour child was "born" on my birthday.

Everything was splendid today. Mike and Susan joined my family celebration.
