    Default Kinder or stick with daycare?

    Ds attends a great daycare centre and I really adore the 3-4yr old daycare carer for next year. There is an option for ds to attend kinder on the same day as daycare for 4hrs (gets walked across from daycare and back). I also like the kinder teacher a lot. My issues are:
    -ds will be the only one being walked over to kinder (so far, maybe 1 or 2 might join)
    -I will be paying full daycare fees plus the kinder fee and ds will miss out on daycare's morning tea and lunch.

    Wdyt??

    I have to leave him the whole day as I work that day.

    I would just leave him at day care. If he is the only one going, he may wonder why. Also, it may just disrupt his day too much. What if he is in the middle of something, like painting or building or playing? He may not like having to leave what he was doing to go elsewhere??

    Also, you are paying for a full day. What is the day care education like? Is it Kinder funded?

    Thanks. The day care does not have a kinder program, but the lady that runs it seems motivated and a really nice young lady. They plant seeds, make/create things etc. I noticed that there are not a lot of 'toys' in there like the 2-3 room.
