Always do what is best for you. You come first.
I think parents should also stick to the hours they have booked childcare for. If there are any changes let the caregiver know in advance, still compensate the caregiver for the total time booked.
Lot's of play. Get to know the child's environment.
I believe the average pay per hour is 17 dolloars
I would suggest at home; arts & crafts. Taking the children out for walks and trips to the park and bookstores should be good also. Good luck!
