To daycare or not to daycare?? That is the question. ....Allison, Bangsar

Hi Allison.....day care is becoming an attractive option for many working mothers and daycare centres boast many attractive learning options to facilitate the development of the child. However, a controversial study published in Child Development found that the more time children spent in centre based care before kindergarden, the more likely they were to report behavioural problems. Still they have been so many other studies showing benefits of daycare including social and intellectual stimulation. So it all depends on the type of daycare and the quality of service it offers. Do your homework before selecting the right centre :)
