I am trying to find 3 days care for my 17 month old (and it has been a battle) so that I can go back to work Mon, Thurs and Fri. I am considering sending my LO to 3 different centres across the week as I have found a lovely long day care centre with a Monday available, and two different family day carers one offering a Thurs and another a Fri. It would be a short term thing until one of the places could offer me a second and then a third day . . . But am I asking for trouble all the same? My LO has never attended day care before this but has been looked after by grandma for whole days before (no problems) and seems to mix well with other children. Has anyone else had to do this and how did it work out?
