5 Benefits Of Dayhomes

Many parents are surprised when they find out that they have other options than daycare to send their kids to while they are at work. Dayhomes combine the advantages of a daycare with the safety and comfort of an at-home environment.

In today’s blog, we’ll be exploring five of the most significant benefits to sending your kids to a day home.

#1: Convenient & Affordable

In-home care is typically much less expensive than a traditional day care center. Since there aren’t as many overhead costs, you’ll be able to get quality care for a lower cost. In-home providers will also be more likely to be accommodating to last-minute care, such as during emergencies or when something comes up suddenly that you need to take care of. Our dayhomes are flexible and affordable.


#2: Smaller Groups

Dayhomes also typically have smaller class sizes than daycares. This essentially means more one-on-one attention with the provider, meaning you’re giving your kids extra care and educational attention as well as reducing the risk of them being exposed to illnesses.


#3: Academic Advancement

Studies have found that children who spend more time at a child care facility in their early life have a high likelihood of achieving higher cognitive and academic abilities. The biggest defining characteristic of the success of the children in the study linked in the previous sentence is the quality of the daycare facility. VonKids aims to provide the absolute best environment to prepare your child for an excellent future. Learn about our childcare philosophy here.


#4: Smoother Transition to Kindergarten

Other studies have found that children who attend daycare or dayhomes more easily adjust to going to kindergarten and subsequent formal schooling. Preparing your child for success early gives them a better chance at a happy, successful life — whatever that might turn out to mean for them.
