Many parents are faced with the question, “Should I hire a babysitter or send my child to one of the daycares in PJ?”  We understand how this decision can be difficult (after all, we are all parents ourselves).  With child safety concerns rising, finding a trustworthy full-time babysitter or daycare centre in PJ can be time-consuming and tedious.  Parents want their child to be safe, to have fun, learn new things and be comfortable while they are out making a living.  But how many babysitters are truly trustworthy, and what are the pros and cons of hiring a babysitter, or enroling your child in one of the daycares in PJ?


Babysitters or Daycares in PJ? 

Pros of Daycares in PJ

  1. There is often more discovery and playtime at a daycare centre! Think about it:  it’s a new environment with different toys and stimuli to keep your kiddo busy.
  2. Your child gets to interact with other children their age. This not only helps to develop their social skills, but their emotional skills improve as well due to them learning how to be and play with their peers!
  3. Daycare centres are often more structured in their learning regime than hiring an at-home babysitter who may, or may not, be helping your child’s mental capacities.
  4. Because of the structured routine, the nanny at the daycare centre can keep you posted on your child’s development!


Cons of Daycare Centres in PJ

  1. Hours are often limited at daycare centres with the exception of a couple (check out Little Human Scholars’ extended hours full day daycare programme).
  2. If the daycare centre isn’t licensed, safety can be an issue.
  3. It is difficult to assess how often or well a daycare centre sanitises its’ location (however, there are daycares in PJ which sanitises their whole facility daily).
  4. Parents must research extensively to ensure their child is in good hands with positive and nurturing teachers.
  5. Sometimes pickup and drop off is a chore (especially when braving the PJ jam).


Pros of Hiring a Babysitter in PJ

  1. You don’t have to worry about picking them up or dropping them off at a daycare centre.
  2. Babysitters in PJ can often work off hours – not all daycare centres offer this service (ask about Little Human Scholars extended hours service).
  3. Children often receive the benefit of having a lot of one-to-one attention with their caretaker.


Cons of Hiring a Babysitter in PJ

  1. Abuse can be an issue if parents don’t research the person watching their child.
  2. Some babysitters/ nannies don’t offer an educational regime for the child.
  3. Some babysitters in PJ may not give the child a lot of attention (i.e. sitting them in front of the T.V. for hours at a time).
  4. Children may not receive a lot of social interaction with their peers.

About Little Human Scholars School in PJ

Little Human Scholars is an all-in-one childcare solution.  It is a preschool, playschool, kindergarten, nursery and full-day daycare centre (with extended hours) located in the heart of PJ.


In fact, the location is one of the things which makes Little Human Scholars so sought after – it is conveniently nestled near Jalan Gasing, University hospital, PJ Old town, PJ New town, Jaya One, Jaya33, and the PJ IT Mall.


The best part is LHS has premiere services many other schools in PJ don’t offer such as full-day daycare with extended hours, CCTV access for parents, and a nifty little phone app called Toddlytic which provides parents with automatic updates on their child’s development, behaviour and health checks.


With full-time guards always present at each of their locations, access to CCTV (which is in every room except the office, bathroom and kitchen areas), and very strict pick-up and drop-off rules, Little Human Scholars treats every child who walks into its hallways as one of their own children!


This place has it all:  location, safety, health, IGSCE curriculum and play-based learning.  What more could you ask for?  Did I mention they also have transportation services and offer meal plans for students?  It doesn’t get any better than that.


If you are interested in a tour of one of our centres (that’s right, there’s more than one), all you need to do is fill out the form here or call +6017-7303-025 and an LHS administrative staff will get back with you shortly!
