I've decided not to send DS to sessional kinder, as the centre he goes to now has a great kinder program, and i will still need the childcare.
My dilemma now is that I'm going on mat leave in a few weeks and won't be going back to work till DS is 4. He will be staying at CC 2 days a week until the end of the year, and then I was planning on dropping him down to one day next year- he goes to my MIL one day a week so he would be home with me and the baby 3 days. If I did that I would hope to do a few more activities with him- story time and maybe a dance/gym class as well as the playgroup we already attend.
I'm now wondering whether it would be better to send him to kinder 2 days a week. I know for most kids they get more out of it and settle better the more they are there. And I wonder whether it would be nice for me to have an extra day just with the baby. 2 days would stretch us financially, though, and i know my mum would be happy to have him at least once or twice a week for an afternoon or something to give me a break.
He'd be going up to three days when he's 4.
So, what should I do, 1 or 2 days a week?
