I think the web cam access is a great idea! We have 2 kids and have NEVER used a babysitter or daycare just for that simple reason. Well, we did use some of our close friends, but thats beside the point.
I have heard of some flat rate day cares before. Its a marketing scheme. They KNOW you need a babysitter, they KNOW it'* difficult to find alternatives, so they make you pay out the arse for it.
Flexible would be great, especially for those that are low income.
At work daycare? They should have started that back in the cave man days. It would be a morale booster if a parent could be only a few rooms away from a child instead of living in fear all day long with a stranger.
