Effects of Daycare on Children

We believe that daycare institution for children should be a great relief and benefit for parents with multiple jobs and careers. However, there were several discussions over the benefits, disadvantages, and facilities that these various institutions adopted.

Benefits of Daycare on Children

Does daycare benefit children? Absolutely, there are great benefits of daycare for children.   Benefits such as acquiring different social skills, developing their vocabulary, learning to live independently from their parents, and creating a culture of constant interaction with their peers.  These benefits enhance the development of respecting the opinions and emotions of others, as well as learning the importance of teamwork.

All of this encourages a friendly attitude that will often follow them for years and generally for life. With this system, it would be difficult to compare the children who attend daycare with those whose parents kept at home during the preschool year.  But, it has been found that the transition to elementary school is easier for children who attended daycare to those who did not attend.

Are Daycares a Viable Option?

On the other hand, I think that parents assume that not all daycares will provide adequate childcare facilities. The basis of their daily debate is the inability of these daycares to ensure quality care and education needed for growth and adaptation.  This explains the fact that the number of children per employed staff members exceeds the recommended ratio.  As a result, they concluded that there are not enough high-quality professionals for the ideal care of children in most daycares.

The licensing guideline states that there should be no more than fifteen students per teacher at the level of four and five years. Children who are in a ration larger than the guideline tend to see less desirable results.   Not only is the ratio important.  The teachers must also be well educated in order to take care of children who are not able to make many decisions for themselves.

The National Institute of Health has conducted several studies, and the results show that children who spent a lot of time in a low-quality daycare center showed more cases of aggressive behavior and needed constant and individual attention.   This trend continued with the child through the sixth grade.


Each daycare must have a higher proportion of staff per child. Therefore, parents must carefully monitor the care of children and operations before they register their children to have a positive experience. There must be quality instructors that can ensure that these children have the proper expertise in learning and show genuine love for them. If you train children’s minds more than their physical attributes, they will have the quality to spot peer problems quickly. Therefore, teachers must be able to train and develop children psychologically.

However, parenting remains an essential aspect of proper child education. If a parent keeps track of the children, receives progress reports, and regularly monitors behavior in the classroom, teachers are much more concerned about children whose parents pay regular visits.
