Most parents are often in a dilemma of whether to take their children to a childcare centre or provide home-based care. Proponents of home-based care argue that it is cheap and gives the parent more control over what the child learns. Unknown to them, childcare centres have numerous benefits. They equip children with resilience, independence, communication, and socialisation skills. These skills play a pivotal role in your child's development and help prepare them for formal learning.
