Childcare Options




Good morning, friends!

I asked you guys on my stories alll about childcare and you were MORE than helpful! I honestly had no idea where to begin and if we wanted to take our son to a childcare facility or have in-home childcare.


A little backstory - we will only need childcare for 1 or 2 days a week. My parents will keep him two days, I will keep him one day and then Luke and I will have him on the weekends (obviously!). Also, we will not need childcare until he's ~ 5 months old after my maternity leave.

After reading through and chatting you guys about our childcare options, we decided to do an in-home nanny for the 1 or 2 days a week we need help and then when he's around 2 years old, we will send him to a daycare because we think the child interaction at a young age is so important! I will list some childcare options and what I learned from you guys. Hopefully this can help other mamas in the area!!


Questions to Ask


NAEYC accreditation? Rules on DFPS? Do you supply lunch, snacks, and diapers? Do you follow Know Co. school schedules? How do they warm up breast milk for feedings? Waitlist length? Part-time options? Touring options? Teacher to baby ratio?
