Nannies vs Daycare in PJ, Pros and Cons

15/03/2017

With infants, anything can happen.  Hiring a nanny who knows basic first aide not only can save your child’s life, but it puts your mind at ease while you are off working or running errands.  Your child’s health and well-being is paramount!

Coincidentally, finding a live-in or part-time nanny can not only be time-consuming, but it can get expensive….unless you go the cheap route.  If you are anything like me, I like to do a little research before putting my child’s life in the hands of another.  Often, parents ask themselves whether or not hiring a nanny or putting their child in a daycare centre in PJ is in their highest interest.  Here, we came up with a few pros and cons of both to make your life easier!

Nannies Pros and Cons

First, we will look at the pros and cons of hiring an in-house nanny.

Pros of hiring a nanny over a daycare centre in PJ: 

Travel time is reduced as there is no need to drop your child off at a centre or facility.

Nannies can often follow your child’s personal schedule.

Nannies often cook for your child/make baby food per your request.

Depending on the nanny, it can be cheaper than enroling your child in a daycare centre in PJ (though sometimes “cheap” isn’t always the best option…especially when it comes to your child).

Nannies can often work on the weekends.

Daycare centres often train their staff on first aide in the event of an emergency AND has procedures and protocol in place to ensure their children, babies and infants are safe.

 

Cons of hiring a nanny over a daycare centre in PJ:

It becomes difficult for your child to interact with other children.  This can hinder their social skills.

You have to research to ensure you hire a respectable nanny who operates out of integrity – there are too many horror stories in the papers, and you don’t want to add yourself to them!

Not all nannies support your child’s development (games, activities, songs, etc).  Sometimes they feel their job is to simply “watch” your child, and interaction is low.

Children may form a stronger bond with the nanny than the parents (especially if mom and dad work a lot).

Not all nannies are fluent in English.

Not all nannies know basic first-aide – this is handy to know if your child starts choking on a piece of food or hurts themselves.

Daycare Pros and Cons

Pros of enroling your child in a daycare in PJ:

It’s in PJ which is a prime location for those who either live and/or work in PJ.

Social interaction between your child and other children increases, supporting your child in forming important social bonds paramount to future success.

Abuse is less common in daycare centres.

Depending on the daycare centre, it can be cheaper than hiring an in-house or live-in nanny.

 

Cons of enroling your child in a daycare in PJ

Not all daycare centres in PJ offer extended hours (unless it is Little Human Scholars full day daycare centre in PJ)

Not all daycare centres cook for your child or infant (unless, again it is Little Human Scholars full day daycare centre in PJ)

Not all daycare centres have CCTV access for parents so they can check in on their child (unless it is Little Human…you get the picture)!
