Babysitter or Daycare Centre? Which is the Best for My Child?

29/01/2019

With child safety concerns rising, finding a trustworthy full-time babysitter or daycare centre in PJ can be time consuming and tedious.  Parents want their child to be safe, to have fun and be comfortable while they are out making a living.  But how many babysitters are truly trustworthy (especially if they are not a trusted family member?), and what are the pros and cons of hiring a babysitter, or instead enroling your child in a daycare centre.

 

Babysitter or Daycare Centre in PJ?  Pros and Cons of Both

 

Pros of Daycare Centres in PJ

  1. There is often more discovery and playtime at a daycare centre as it is a new environment with different toys and stimuli to keep your kiddo busy.
  2. Your child gets to interact with other children their age furthering their social skills.
  3. Daycare centres are often more structured in their learning regime than hiring an at-home babysitter.

 

Cons of Daycare Centres in PJ

  1. Hours are often limited at daycare centres with the exception of a couple (check out Little Human Scholars’ extended hours full day daycare programme).
  2. If the daycare centre isn’t licensed, safety and sanitisation can be a concern.
  3. Parents must research extendsively to ensure their child is in good hands with positive and nurturing teachers.
  4. Sometimes pickup and drop off is a chore (especially when braving the PJ jam).

 

Pros of Hiring a Babysitter in PJ

  1. You don’t have to worry about picking them up or dropping them off at a daycare centre in PJ.
  2. Babysitters in PJ can often work off hours – not all daycare centres offer this service (check out Little Human Scholars extended hours service).
  3. Children often receive the benefit of having a lot of one-to-one attention with their caretaker.

 

Cons of Hiring a Babysitter in PJ

  1. Abuse can be an issue if parents don’t research the person watching their child.
  2. Some babysitters/ nannies don’t offer an educational regime for the child.
  3. Some babysitters in PJ may not give the child a lot of attention (i.e. sitting them in front of the T.V. for extended hours).
  4. Children may not receive a lot of social interaction with their peers.

 

Little Human Scholars Offers Extended Services for Busy Parents

Little Human Scholars childcare centre in PJ addresses each of the cons of enroling a child into daycare by offering many additional services other daycare centres in PJ don’t offer – some being extended hours, full-day daycare, and a service called “hourly drop off” designed for parents who need a babysitter in the evening or on weekends.

  1. There are full-time guards stationed at each daycare centre in PJ who keep a strict watch on who enters and leaves the premises.

About Little Human Scholars School and Daycare Centre in PJ

Little Human Scholars is an all-in-one childcare solution.  It is a preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full day daycare centre (with extended hours) located in the heart of PJ.

 

In fact, the location is one of the things which makes Little Human Scholars so sought after – it is conveniently nestled near Jalan Gasing, University hospital, PJ Old town, PJ New town, Jaya One, Jaya33, and the PJ IT Mall.

 

The best part is LHS has premiere services many other schools in PJ don’t offer such as full-day daycare with extended hours, CCTV access for parents, and a nifty little phone app called Toddlytic which provides parents with automatic updates on their child’s development, behaviour and health checks.

 

With full-time guards always present at each of their locations, access to CCTV (which is in every room except the office, bathroom and kitchen areas), and very strict pick-up and drop-off rules, Little Human Scholars treats every child who walks into its hallways as one of their own children!

 

This place has it all:  location, safety, health, IGSCE curriculum and play-based learning.  What more could you ask for?  Did I mention they also have transportation services and offer meal plans for students?  It doesn’t get any better than that.

 

If you are interested in a tour of one of our centres (that’s right, there’s more than one), all you need to do is fill out the form here or call +6017-7303-025 and an LHS administrative staff will get back with you shortly!
