    I'm another who would never use family daycare.

    I've got 3 kids. I've been using the same daycare since 2009. All the staff are pretty much the same since that time.

    Not really. That's four children of VARIOUS ages to one carer. Often there'll be one pair of siblings.

    As opposed to eight BABIES to two carers, plus floats doing relief/changing faces often etc.

    I understand your reasoning @ZAK and I do believe that some children are just not meant to be in CC centres from a young age. They need a smaller environment like a FDC. Other kids manage ok. But I do get what you mean.

    I get it too. I don't think the 'disadvantage' of daycare for under 2's is sufficient to justify closing them down.

    In my 16 month old's daycare room, they have 2 carers and a trainee. It's a non profit council run centre, though. One of the carers has been there since my 6 yo was a baby in the same room.

    What age do you consider babies? In the 0-2 room, there are maximum 4 babies under 2.

    Why not? It's her opinion and she is entitled to it.

    I'm not saying zak isn't entitled to an opinion... Just that I have a different one ... That closing down daycares for under 2's is way too over the top and Unecessary.

    Gosh, my 16 month old claps and cheers when I get her out of the car at daycare. She is not disadvantaged by it at all!
