Why do parents need to send child to day care rather than just have a babysitter at home?

8. 为什么要把孩子送到托儿所,而不把宝宝留在家中让保姆照顾?

以我们的经验,两岁前就上幼儿园的孩子和两岁后再送去幼儿园的孩子他们都会有很明显的区別。早些送到托儿中心的孩子他们会表现得很独立,很自信,很合群,也善于表达自己的情感和容易理解别人的感受。更重要的是这类型的孩子他们很小就俱备了和同伴沟通和解决问题的能力,这些独有的能力会让孩子从小就充满自信。要是孩子一直留在家中,保姆或祖父母会照顾得很好,但相反会抹杀了培养孩子独立和自信的机会。。

Based on our experience, there is significant difference between children who goes to day care before 2 years old and those who attend day care after 2 years old. Those children who attend day care earlier are more independent, more confident, more sociable, and they also are better at expressing their emotions and understanding their friends' feelings. More importantly, throughout experience in the day care, those children will acquire the skills of communicating with other people as well as the ability of problem solving, making them more confident people at a young age. If parents keep their child at home all the time, thinking the babysitters or the grandparents can take a good care of the child, it will eliminate the opportunity of being independent and confident for their child at the end.
