Flexible Part-Time Child Day Care Options | La Petite Academy

I don't know if daycares will take such a young child for only one day a week
I have done it both ways. Good things about daycare...

they usually have a school-like time (getting read to, etc)

they get to interact with other kids

they usually will listen to your concerns (to ease worries)

you child will start to be more independent (in a good way)

they learn sharing and patience (ie, another child taking toys away)

Negitive things

they have a tendency to get sick more often depending on the size of school and how it is ran

My boys had to be in daycare when I was a single mom. They really enjoyed the daycare. The daycare they went to only had 10 kids and the did preschool twice a week. The boys really loved it. They were also watched at a friends house for a time, but they really seemed to enjoy daycare better. My only advice would be try to find a small one. I hope that helps and good luck.
for one day a week, id probably do daycare. kid would probably like the interaction with others kids.

My daughter, now 25 months, has been attending a day care since she was 11 months old, but only one day a week, and two Fridays a month. I think it was tough for her for quite some time, mostly because I was leaving her, but also because it in some ways was like starting over for her each week. I commend you for wanting to spend as much time as possible with your son. That was our primary goal as well, hence as little time at daycare as possible. I would go with the daycare you really like--it can be hard to find a good match. Even though you only need him to go 2 days a week, perhaps you could, when you needed to, use that 3rd day to run errands or have time for yourselves. (That's why my daughter goes 2 Fridays a month in addition to her one day a week.) c's mom Rushing to pick up my baby from daycare, so I can get home and have one hour (maybe) with her before she goes to sleep for the night…I pay more for medical insurance each month than one daycare family pays me for two months of full time care.for one day a week, id probably do daycare. kid would probably like the interaction with others kids. He's 7 months.
So I work as�a paralegal from home and one day a week and my mom watches dd, which they both love. Well my bosses have been so awesome and accomadating as they knew I didnt want to�work full-time and be away from dd so they have been flexible but recently asked me to pick up one more day. I think daycare would actually be great for my dd to get interaction with other kids as she is our only one. I think the stimulation and new environment would be exicting for her too because she loves going to baby gym and is very social. I don't want to be away from dd more than 2 days and finally found a daycare that I like that will allow just one day (as most require at least 2). I thought it would work out but my friend who is a preschool teacher said that one day is not a good idea because it is not often enough for her to get adjusted, what do you guys think?By sixth grade, the researchers detected few differences between the day-care center kids and the others—shall we just call them the Children Whose Parents Truly Love Them?—who had stay-at-home moms or nannies or some other arrangement. What mattered more than early child care, in terms of school performance and behavior, were parenting and genes. "Parenting quality significantly predicted all the developmental outcomes and much more strongly than did any of the child-care predictors," the researchers wrote. Never mind that central, important finding. The downside of day care is what everyone wants to talk about.

I am open 9 1/2 hrs. and just this alone is 48 hrs. a week. I have one friend that does anything over 45 hrs. per week, is considered OT at the rate of $10.00 per hr. per child. THis allows for a 40 hr. week, and an hr. drive time daily.
