Better manners

A huge proven benefit of daycare is better behavior in children. This is because kids learn how to share and solve problems among themselves, with proper adult supervision, of course. Kids will learn to use their nice words to resolve issues, not violence.

While at first it may be difficult to say goodbye, once you fall into a routine, you will find yourself much less stressed out as a parent. As they say, it takes a village to raise a child, and the daycare facility is a part of that village!
