Now, I am president of my church and we have a day care for children 6 weeks to 5 years old. I think it's a great facility and the children there are given great care because we monitor our teachers very closely and we never exceed the recommended student/teacher ratios.
But every day care isn't great and some parents have nightmare experiences with their children being in day care. Were YOU in day care? If so, do you regret that you couldn't stay at home with mom or extended family?

My mom stayed at home with me and my sisters, when I was about old enough to be a latch key kid, she went to work at my youngest sister's school, so she was getting home soon after me, and my other little sister would. With my kids, I've seen some good day cares, and some terrible ones. The first one we used lasted about 2 days, because they didn't even change the diapers, one day you figure maybe it was just an end of the day thing, 2, they're fucking up, they shut down less than a month later.
Probably the best one was run by a Lutheran church, also the most expensive one. I've been staying home watching my little ones since COVID hit, and am just starting to look for contracts/work again.
Anyway, I don't regret it at all, there will never be another chance to spend this much time with my kids. These are memories I'll hold onto when they're teenagers and yelling "I hate you!" and shit lol
