I have returned to work full time and have DS in a day care centre, yesterday was his first day. When i dropped him off i advised the team leader that he was due for breakki at 8am, it was all written on the routine forms as well that i handed her. After tears from me i left and phoned at 8.50am to see how he was, they told me he was crying and they were about to offer him some food....an hour late to when he normally has breakki and he would of been tired as he goes down at about 8.45am.
When i picked him up the team leader was on lunch and the other girls didnt really have an explanation as to what happened. I was upset because it was his first day and i would of thorght they would of tried to make everything run as smoothly as possible. He was fine for the rest of the day and when i picked him up he was sitting up playing happily. So that was the only issue i had.
I called the centre manager today and she said she would speak to the Team Leader tomorow as she was sick today and call me back.
I also got a phone call from family day care yesterday advising us of a day car mum who lives a few streets away from us, we are going to meet her this arvo.
I just dont know what to do! DS is due to go back to the centre on Friday.
I know this is a very personal decision but would love advice from those parents who at some point have had their children in both options and how they found one against the other - Pro's and Cons.
