Babysitter Vs. Daycare CentersWhen it comes to child care, there are a few options available for those who don’t have a stay-at-home spouse or relative watching over your little one. We’ve talked a little in the past about some reasons why daycare is great for children. Today we’ll be going over some of the reasons why having your kids enrolled in an Orlando child care program at Kids & Company can help your children learn and develop.

We’re not saying that getting a babysitter isn’t the best option for the occasional night out or for a special event, but providing your child with a consistent child care facility has many benefits that a babysitter can’t supply.

Guaranteed Daily Supervision

A babysitter, no matter how reliable the person is, can always be susceptible to falling ill and having a last minute emergency. With an Orlando daycare, you know there will be a responsible and well-trained adult looking over your child every day.

Socialization Opportunities

One-on-one time with a babysitter can create a great bond between the two of them, but daycare presents the opportunity to interact with many children and adults, allowing them to gain valuable social skills that are important to their development.

This social interaction will also allow them to begin to lean crucial social skills and manners, such as how to wait their turn, to share, and to ask for things politely when they need help.

Educational Environment 

While a babysitter can begin to teach your child or children the fundamentals, a daycare is more properly equipped with not only properly educated child care professionals, but also with the academic and physical activities needed to expand their knowledge and build motor skills.

Structured but Flexible

At Kids & Company we have many Full-Time and Part-Time child care options for you to choose from that center around your schedule. You can rest easy knowing that your child will have the attention, food, and activities they need to grow and flourish.


Kids & Company offers so much more than the typical Orlando daycare. Free hot meals, free PM transportation, after school care until 7pm, and we even have the option for Saturday and night care at our Curry Ford location. With three locations around Orlando, there is a convenient location for you and your child. If you have any questions about our programs, including infant care, childcare, VPK, or after school programs give us a call at (407) 227-1015.
