daycare centers
Explanation:
Daycare centers are like mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving dinner. Nothing fancy (although a few offer all the extras, such as computer and dance classes), but reliable and affordable compared to some other kinds of care such as nannies. Some accept babies as young as six weeks old, and many allow children to stay until they enter kindergarten. You don't have to negotiate pay as you would with a nanny, it won't quit on you, and care is available when you need it. For these reasons and more, daycare is often a great way to go. In fact, nearly 30 percent of children under the age of five with working mothers attend daycare, says the Children's Defense Fund.
