There are two types of childcare facilities: in-home daycare and daycare or early learning centers.
In-home daycares are usually run out of someone's private home but require a special license to do so. There is a limit to the number of children they can take and this often offers a more private daycare experience.
Daycare or early learning centers have the benefit of multiple classrooms allowing children to be separated by age group. There can be up to a one year wait list for many daycare and early learning centers, so make sure you are looking at childcare options as soon as possible.
