    I'm a preschool teacher and work in a LDC centre
    It was without a doubt dd would return with me and she'd be in the under twos room and I in the older room

    LDC - ratio is maximum 1:4 most rooms have 2:8 at max so same ratios really as LDC (1:5 for under 5s)
    Depending on the child they may bond more to one teacher or all their room teachers or even another room teacher. Those bonds are encouraged and fostered. For me I love the relationships my dd has built with all the children it's like she has this huge extended family she has grown along a group of children who have been in her room for over two years now. She sees her teachers as Aunty figures and is even close to a lot of other mums and dads. She is close with all the older kids too and misses the ones who went of to big school this year. I know she will be friends with the toddlers for the next three years at least and we will maintain contact. I even know who is going to big school with her in 3 years

    FDC. If you want to have a home environment this is what you want (I've never been a FDC mum or had dd there) but they obviously have smaller groups of children of 5 max children under 5 and 7 under 12. They do every days outings with the FDC mum as well like shopping and school drops, trips to the park etc. lot if home experiences can be had as well. Many FDC mums have their own children there as well (of course they count to ratios)
