I think if we had to rely solely on the centre-based or home-based care system we would be questioning exactly what she has been learning. However we feel comfortable with the experiences she gets at daycare along with the experiences we give her and it is a good balance.
Scott Lancaster has one daughter and is a stay-at-home dad who has also used both centre-based and home-based care.
As not only a parent but also as someone who works from home the education and care of my daughter is very big on my radar. I have found using ECE and then in home care to have its own pros and cons but overall I am satisfied with our experience with both of them.
However, I would be cautious that as a parent and therefore Generation X, we are all very keen to outsource everything and this to some extent includes our child’s education. It is easier to put the power in someone else’s hands than to sit down and actually spend time with our child with giving them our knowledge.
