5 Reasons to Choose Home Child Care Educational Program for Your Little One, Cortlandt, New York

Day care centers and large preschools are not a good fit for every parent or child. A home child care educational program is a great alternative for children requiring individual attention and parents who need a more convenient solution.

To help you decide if it’s the right choice for your family, here are five benefits to consider:

1. Proximity

Most families choose home child care programs near where they live. It’s a good way for them to reduce their daily commute time and allows them more time to spend with their kids.

2. One-on-One Attention

Day care center classes often host more than 15 kids per group with 1-2 Teachers or assistants. This means each child has less individual time with the teachers. Home child care programs, however, typically features smaller classes, and focuses on providing individual attention and guidance to further each child’s learning. 

3. Convenience

Home child care centers tend to have more flexible hours than day care centers. This makes drop-off and pick-up easier for parents who have changing schedules or don’t work 9-5 jobs. 

4. Comfort

home-child-careMany kids have a hard time adjusting to day care because it’s different from spending time with their family. Home child care educational programs, however, provide a more familiar environment, so it makes for an easier transition to school-life. 

5. Socialization

A day care center offers the opportunity for kids to interact, but there are such large classes that it can be overwhelming for children. Smaller groups in home child care make socialization easier on them and learning more fun.
