I am constantly amazed and intrigued by the variety of childcare arrangements available and utilized by moms today. When working full-time I always had a nanny as do many of my friends. Some women I know have a nanny share arrangement but others have their kids in daycare or are lucky enough to have family around to help.
In other parts of the country, the most affordable and available childcare is a home care facility. These are often run by neighbourhood moms specializing in childcare or looking for a way to subsidize the household income. Some moms who don’t need full-time childcare manage to trade babysitting with a friend in exchange for time to get work done.
All of these arrangements have their pros and cons so take the poll below and let us know what form of childcare works for you and see how other moms across the country voted.
