Several months ago, not long before I started my own blog, my bloggy guru, Jodi, wrote a post about her love/hate relationship with daycare. You can read it here:
Daycare…do you love it or hate it?
(Check out Jodi’s blog at Mummyhood101)
At the time I could have written that post word for word. Unfortunately over the following few months, there were more and more reasons I hated my daycare and very few reasons I loved it. I decided to bite the bullet and start the hunt for a new daycare.
Fortunately for us this coincided with a new preschool opening in our area, it is linked to our parish church and the primary school that we hope the kids will go to.
We went to an open day at the end of last year and were pretty impressed with what we saw and in 8 weeks from putting Cheeky Boy’s name on the waiting list we have had more communication than I had in 2 and a half years at our last centre.
Cheeky Boy started today and he was very excited. We drove past yesterday and he told me all the exciting things he was going to do.
Drop off this morning went pretty smoothly. He was a bit hesitant to hand his water bottle to a stranger and had a quiet wander for a few minutes to check the place out but as soon as he spotted the roller coaster he was sorted. Two rides on that and he was waving me out the door.
Fingers crossed for a great 2013 at preschool!
Have a great day
