How did you choose your current child care provider? Did you choose close to home or work and why? What were the three most important elements of a program for you? Did you have any dealbreakers?
Answered on 6th July 2010:
We recently went through this for the first time, and I wrote about it for Work It, Mom, here (http://bit.ly/aUYdAN) and at my personal blog here (http://bit.ly/a0FPws) and here (http://bit.ly/dAWZZL). The short version is that from a practical standpoint it really came down to what we could afford, but luckily for us the cheaper option has ended up being the best option all around: an in-home daycare five minutes from home (where I work) that offers an amazing range of activities. (Seriously, I sometimes wish I could spend the day there myself!)
Did you always want to have kids?
Answered on 11th July 2008:
Absolutely yes, and I never thought I'd be this old (29) before having my first. I'm from a culture where people have lots of kids and start young, though, so for most of my life, I barely knew that NOT having them was even an option!
