From an experienced telecommuter:

Not only does it cost money to provide your own office, computer, and
all that, it saves the client from having to provide these things. The
money and time you save commuting may be important to you, but is
irrelevant to the client. The day care should be irrelevant unless your
kids can really take care of themselves in your home and you can work
without distraction.

If the work is better done onsite, then the client can specify that. If
the work can be done offsite, then you charge a higher rate and justify
it by the savings the client realizes as a result. Which is better
depends on the case.
