Daycare for working lines?

I'm not doing it but if I was to bring my gsd in there for a few hours every day how would she cope? I know it's a very generalized question but maybe have experience with a german line....thanks.

The facility where Finn is trained offers day care.
The trainer owns and trains GSDs so people also leave their GSDs there for day care. And they seem to do well.
I used to drop him off for a few hours once each week when he was 7 or 8 months old.

They do a good job of matching dogs up for playing and about 5 staff wander around and monitor the dogs.
Finn absolutely hated being left there for day care.

Now I occasionally leave him with a woman who has a day care in her yard.
I liked that on Finn's 1st day she brought each by one in to her house to meet Finn until all the dogs were together in one room.
He got along with the whole lot. He likes being there.
