Daycare recommendations for infants in the Cambridge/Somerville area

Hi, my wife/partner/homie and I are going to be having a baby. He will emerge in August. Can you recommend daycare places (including home daycare providers) near Cambridge and Somerville that you've had good experiences with?

My wife will be taking three months of maternity leave. After that, we have not figured out exactly what we're going to do, but we're hoping to swing some reductions in work so that we'll have 1-3 days at home between the two of us, which will probably mean that we'll need 3 or more days a week of daycare.
We are looking for probably what everyone's looking for: A good caretaker to infant ratio, kind and patient caretakers, clean facilities, no child abuse. Advice on anything else that we should look out for when we visit daycares is also welcome.
Also, are babies at all bothered at all by inconsistencies between daily schedules? If he goes to daycare some days and stays home some days, is that going to alienate or trouble him?
