I have 2 1/2yr old dd and 3 1/2yr old ds and have a nanny come once a week instead of daycare so I can do some chores or meet up with a friend? However my 3 yr old has recently been hasseling to go to "school" so I'm taking him tomorrow to daycare to see if he likes it. He doesn't have to go but he wants to cause a few of his friends go. We'll see how he goes
I work 3 nights a week 5.30-11pm so I have my days with my son (3 on Sunday) while hubby is at work. I'm lucky I don't need to work but I love my job (most of the time) and it gives me independence
My son goes to Childcare 1 day a week and has done since he was 12mths old. It gives me a day to do things that may be hard to do when he is around or even just have a me day, have a snooze etc. He loves going there and I find he often responds to them better than me as he follows what the other kids do! He isn't as much as a picky eater there and they have a little more luck on the toilet training front too! There is so much he has learned from going and his socialization is fantastic when I'm further along with my pregnancy he will go a 2nd day a week. He is current in prekinder so it's all in preparation for kinder next year
Mind you finding a good Childcare is a must and can be hard! This is our 2nd place and we love it there!
My DS is 3.5 and no I don't send him to daycare, I am a full time stay at home mum & also have DD nearly 6months. I'm a qualified in childcare anyway so I don't feel the need for the kids to go
