I have 6 years old and 18 months old sons. I was lucky to find a very good didi for my elder son and with the support of my parents and in-laws , I avoided daycare. But, now to take care of my younger son I have left my job. My big question and concern is - "in this competitive market, daycares are racing and blooming, how much stress they are loading on toddlers and small kids to show they are the best and kids are very happy & learning there".

The points put down are something most of the mothers of today are aware of. It's more like that final call you need to take between the two, experiment and keep reviewing. These blogs seem to be just collecting information and putting in one place.

Hi! Children who are 4-6 months old can be sent to a day care centre with a maid hired by u. Many centres allow this. U can b sure that there is someone exclusively to look after ur kid. U should check with the centre first if this is fine with them.

My son is now 10 years old and I've experienced both options .. maid and daycare. Daycare is definitely better. Some of the advantages are food, security and the fact that children will have play mates at the day care. Trust me, your child is going to love his stay there.

Hello everyone I m running 2 daycare centres. And we r specialised in infant and toddler care. Its a fact that children get infected frequently but at the time of enrolment parents should ask about the sick child policy of the daycare. The daycare must have a strict sick child policy. As far as food is concerned there should be a meal planner planned by a dietitian which needs to be provided by the daycare centre every month. this is also a fact that daycare centres are more secure and kids enjoy the company of other kids in daycares. like house maids , the daycare nannies should also be medically fit. U need not to visit twice a day if they provide you a cctv live streaming facility. Although different people have different experiences of daycares and house maids. Thanks.

Megha, Sravanthi... 11 months kid is not so young to keep in day care at all only if the daycare facility is near your work place. you can go n visit day care twice in a day.

Great blog. I too am a working mom and I have employed both means. One advantage with day-care centres is their predictability of schedule and holidays. With maids I have faced the problem of un-announced no-shows.

@Sravanthi though day care is a good option, your kid is bit too young to enroll in a day care. is the daycare very close by to the place you stay? Or I would say wait for a month or so if its possible for you coz lot of parents put their kids when they turn one in day care. on the other hand I do agree with Varshitha that she can put her Lil one as the day care is in front of her house in the same apartment, and she can go pick her kid up whenever such a situation arises. at the end of the day I would say you are the best judge to choose what you think is right. Weigh out both the options and then go for what you think is correct.

Great blog & surely helpful for new moms, I have 6 yr old son & I have tried both options & in my opinion & experience day care are the best as they help your kid grow socially, emotionally. Kids learn to share with each other, they learn to eat everything. My son was with the Maid & he use to watch only TV & when he became 3. 5 he started ruling that maid & he would not listen, he started becoming very aggressive. Day care worked wonders for me.
