She'd have someone she knows looking after her.

Daycare will ring you and you'll have to collect her and keep her with you (from experience of having kids who only ever fall sick at the most awkward of times...).

If that helps, I've had to leave my kids with my (delighted) parents for work for a week - they all had a ball.

Regardless, it looks like you have thought it through and have made your mind up.

Enjoy

All of my business trips are usually 12 to 14 hour days. We meet at breakfast in the hotel, drive to the site, work all day and then the company usually takes us to dinner. I wouldn’t take my kids on my trips because they are so unpredictable.

Sure. Line up day care and get all school assignments ahead so she can accomplish the work she will miss while you’re away.

Plan time with her each day while you aren’t in your meetings.

Set up time to see the area you visit and show her what is interesting about that area.

I guess it depends on the profession - we'll probably start sometime in the morning and be done by 3 or 4 pm. I mean, if it goes longer than that she can always stay in the daycare, I'll make sure she has all her schoolwork in advance and books and entertainment.

What does your daughter think? Does she want to hang out in a daycare all day or would she rather keep her normal schedule and go to school? TBH, I'd be nervous leaving my almost 8 year old alone (or even in a daycare) in another country, no matter how independent she is.

My daughter (14) and I sometimes tag along with my husband on his trips. However, we keep ourselves busy during the day while he's working, and might have dinner together. He will try to plan his travel schedule by a long weekend or use a few vacation days for when his work is done so he gets a quick vacay out of it as well.
