- Continuous care: Most child care centers offer care from the early months of infancy through toddlerhood, and sometimes even beyond.
- Education: A well-organized program is geared to your child's development and growth.
- Socialization: Your baby will get lots of face time with other little ones.
- Cost: If you’re planning to go back to work and
