Enrolling a child in daycare is one of the most stressful transitions for parents. It is normal to experience separation anxiety and worry obsessively about the child's ability to adapt to child care. The challenge gets heightened when you have a kid with special needs. Often, it is hard to find a childcare facility that addresses all the concerns you might have about your child's safety and well-being. However, there are ways that you can work with the facility to accommodate your special needs child.
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.
