    Default Kindergarten or leave DS at child care?

    They all have to follow a national standard now so in theory no different. My DD loved day care I just wanted her to mix with her age group.

    I think it depends on the center rather than the type of service, some preschools are great, some not, some day care centres are great, some not. That said I have worked in both and love preschool, as a staff member there is more time to do things and you get more regular breaks. I think the most important thing is the relationships, if he is happy and connected with the kids and his carers I would leave him there.
