    Wink Child care having both children in same room possible

    Hi everyone,

    Im enrolling DD and DS in to child-care. When they start going dd will be 3 and DS will be 2. It will be DS very first time at child-care and im just wondering is the 2-3 year olds in the same room? I forgot to ask when i was just on the phone to them. I would like it if it is possible to have them in the same room so DS doesn't get to stressed when im not there as he is going through the clingy stage at the moment.

    Also forgot to say DD has a speech delay which i feel as tho going in to the group that is 3-4 yrs is a little soon for her as she isn't all that understandable for her age.


    thanks everyone

    Obviously I'm not sure of EVERY centre, but the ones that myself and friends have used, have a 2-3yr old room and a 4-5yr old room. (Plus a babies' room if they do baby care too).

    Thanks for the reply. I just looked on the Good Start website which the centre use to be ABC and it says 6 wks to 2 yrs then 2-3 yr and 3-4 yrs and 4-5 yrs. Not sure if that is just saying they have all of those ages.
    Oh im hoping it is 2-3. It would make it so much easier for dd and ds. Plus my self as hopfully i wouldnt be so teary eyed haha

    My DDs both went to Good Start (DD1 still does), and even though DD1 was in the preschool room and DD2 was in the nursery, they would always take DD1 down to spend time with her sister. They encourage siblings to be with each other, especially in the early days when they are adjusting to being in the new environment. I'm sure if you talk to the director they won't have a problem letting them spend time with each other if they are in different rooms.


    Me + He = DD1 (2007), DD2 (2010) & BellyBaby due August 2012

    Warning ABC/good start I painful when it comes to accounts. We should be paying 90 a day, today apparently we owe 130 but last week was paid up to date.

    I'd ring the centre & ask. They would have allocated places as per vacancies in each room. A 3yo could be in the 2 - 3 room or the 3 - 4 room, so if you want the 2 - 3 room you would need to clarify that. It's not something you could just change on the first day if you want to (unless there is space in both rooms).

    At my ds's centre they had a 2.5 - 3.5yo room that he went into at the start of a year (at age just 3) and that suited him perfectly.
