Pros and Cons of Daycare Centres and Babysitters in PJ

10/04/2018

Finding a trustworthy full-time babysitter in PJ for your child can be a painstaking project:  you want your child to be safe, to have fun and be comfortable while you are out adulting.  But how many babysitters are free on the weekends or in the evenings after working hours and what are the differences between finding a babysitter versus enroling your child in a daycare centre?

While finding a babysitter in PJ that can come to your home is one possibility, there are many pros and cons to such a service.

 

Enroling Your Child in a Daycare Centre versus Hiring a Babysitter in PJ:

 

Pros of Enroling Your Child in a Daycare Centre in PJ

  1. Your child gets to interact with other children their age furthering their social skills.
  2. 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.
  3. Daycare centres are often more structured in their learning regime than hiring an at-home babysitter.

 

Cons of Enroling Your Child in a Daycare Centre in PJ

  1. Hours are often limited (check out Little Human Scholars’ extended hours for busy parents)
  2. If the daycare centre isn’t licensed, safety can be a concern.
  3. Parents must do their due diligence 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 childcare centre.
  2. Babysitters in PJ can often work off hours daycare centres don’t typically offer.
  3. Children often receive the benefit of having a lot of attention solely on them.

 

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 long hours of time.
  4. Children may not receive a lot of interaction with their peers.

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!
