There are many reasons to love home daycares. One of them is that it provides a relaxed, homey environment for the children and their learning. There is a routine that brings continuity to the child's day, but within that there is open space for them to be themselves, to relax, and learn in a home atmosphere. A home is the foundation from which a family lives from. It's where we gather to eat, to sleep and be together. This is where our children feel safe and comfortable. In my opinion it's exactly where the young child should be.
