Finding the right childcare for your children can be very daunting. After all there are a variety of childcare options available. These include:
When assessing your childcare options, it helps to decide which features are essential, which you would really like, and which you would like but could live without.
Deciding which option is best for you depends on a number of factors, and the questions below can help you make this decision.
Should childcare be close to work or home?
When choosing childcare it is necessary to decide if you want your childcare to be close to your work or home, or even both if possible. If you are ill, it can be preferable to have your childcare near home so that you don’t have far to go to drop your child off. It also makes it simpler for your partner to take your child to nursery/childminder if they do not usually do so. You can even have your childcare take place at home, by employing a nanny for example.
However, it may also be beneficial for you that your child is cared for at a location close to work. This minimizes travelling time, which must be considered as most day care starts after 8am, so the time taken to travel to work and back must be taken into account. Would rush hour traffic mean that you couldn’t arrive at the childcare setting in time? Would you be able to get there quickly in an emergency?
