I am looking for input about the progression/effects on the children of both daycare at a center versus having a nanny/caregiver come in daily? I have twin 7 1/2 month old twins. They currently go to a center but the prices have just increased to a tight amount for me. I have interviewed caregivers to come into my home to care for them while I work in my office upstairs. I have grown attached and my children feel safe and loved by the staff of my center. I want to ensure I am not making a mistake by leaving for financial reasons. I can make it happen, but need to decide if I am willing. If you are a parent who has used both and can speak to the impact on your kids (social skills, wellness, skill development, readiness at school age, etc.) it would help me tremendously. Thanks!
