I have twin girls who are 2 1/2 years old. They currently go to my mom's house and their dad's house during the day while I work. I have recently felt the need for them to go to daycare so they can get that interaction with other children and a little more structure. I realize they are still young and they maybe don't need that at this current age but I feel it will need to happen in the next year or so. I have recently called the lady I want to take them to and she actually has 2 openings, which very rarely happens. I feel like I need to grab this moment and try it out so I can know if my girls are ready or not. Does anyone have any opinions on when a child should be put in daycare? I know that most people don't have the choice of whether or not they put their kids in daycare since it is a little uncommon that a family member can stay at home with them but if you had the choice, what would you do? Obviously I would save money if I had my mom continue watching them but I also feel that if I prevented my kids from doing anything just because of the cost, it would prevent them from growing as a person too. Please let me know your thoughts.
