Just reading your post, it sounds like the first option is the one you feel most comfortable with. My experience with children only consists of my time with my godson and little nieces and nephews, but I think that going with your gut, in this case, is the best choice. Good luck!

What does your gut feeling say?  I’m a big fan of going with my gut.

I agree, go with your gut! Personally I would go with option A. I would feel most comfortable with it. My grandmother had an in home day care which sounds a whole lot like the situation with choice A. My reason is that from my experience. people who have children and grandchildren and have stuck with daycare that long are usually VERY loving and patient.

I’d choose the first one just because she sounds like she really cares for kids (she sounds like my mom) and I’m sure she has a lot of experience.

I agree with Ostrich. Just from reading your description of the two places, it really sounds like you prefer the first one. You should go with your gut on this one!

Who did you feel more of the vibe with?  That’s who I’d go for!

One thing that helped me a lot to be more comfortable with our first choice of daycares was that I toured right around the time that parents were dropping off, and I went up to a few parents in the parking lot who’d just dropped off their kids and asked them how they liked it. They all said great things about it, and that really helped.

Could you do that? I think any site will provide referrals, but I liked getting to take my own little random sample 🙂

The first one.  It sounds like a much warmer place.

It sounds like your gut is slightly leaning towards option #1.

I’d say it depends on what you’re looking for in the long run. #1 sounds more homey and more like a family/babysitter type atmosphere which would be comforting for a newborn. #2 probably provides more learning opportunities since she is a licensed child care provider. I would also be interested to know the ages of the children at each place because that will make a big difference in environments.
