I would check out all the options too.
You don't say what your commute is like, or whether you work a typical 9 to 5, Monday to Friday. Is the drive fairly easy with little traffic? If you face a lot of snarly traffic at the end of the day, a daycare close to work helps avoid being late for pick up. It also helps if there's an emergency (heaven forbid), and you need to get a sick child.
OTOH, if you don't work regularly but will be using full-time care, a daycare away from your home neighbourhood can be a real pain. Who wants to make that commute just to drop off a child, if you aren't also going that way?
In the end though, it can be so tough finding a place that suits your ideals and your child's needs, that the location isn't the most important factor.
Best of luck with your search.
We chose to have DD in a daycare close to my work. We enjoy getting to spend the time with her in the car and it means that she's away from us for the least amount of time possible.
You say your DH works at home. Would he need to have your DS2 in daycare full time, or if the daycare was close, could he drop your son off for less hours? My DH works from home sometimes and if our daycare was close to our home, then DD would spend less time there those days. DH tends to wake up early and work, and would would rather sleep in.
When he's in town, he works from home. But he also has appts to attend with sales reps and he travels a few days each month.
