I'm not completely clear about what your question is. You get significant tax benefits by doing child care in your home, so if the choice was continuing to do child care or work outside of your home, you should take into consideration these tax benefits (house deductions). Only if you can make a lot more money working outside of your home does it make sense to do so. Does that answer your question?
