I love the fact that they go on outings. My mum does family day care and takes the kids to playgroup, play centre (once a month), parks, the library and sometimes to another carer's house. They've even gone on train and bus rides a couple of times. All with permission of course. I think it would be boring staying at home every day. Of course she does craft,stories, singing, outside play etc with them, but sometimes they just need a change of scene.
