My child has been with the same caregiver in her home since he was 6 months old and I cannot praise this home based service enough. He generally is in care 9 - 3pm 5 days a week. My child gets to see and play with the other children in her care and with the numbers being small they form a real bond as opposed to 20 - 30 children running around. She is a real support in keeping my child feeling safe and cared for.
