I need some advice! I'm looking for child care for my daughter who is almost 6. Should I look for an in home care provider or stick with a daycare?

It depends what you want for your child. In the UK most people have a day care provider to pick their child up from school as it is cheaper but schools do run before and after school clubs during term time. At 6 you have many more options. In the UK leisure centres do child care during the holidays where your child can do fun sports all day until you pick them up. I would ask other mothers in the area what they do for child care and work from there.

If your child likes the one to one attention go with a child minder, if she likes to be one of a crowd then go with after school clubs and day care providers.
