    Yep, just not everyday. I also send him for shorter days. He loves it and it gives me time to have lunch with friends or catch up on jobs that I need to get done.

    I teach 4 days per week, and during school holidays I usually keep DD (2 1/2) home for one week, and send her to daycare in the second week so I can get some programming done. During Christmas holidays I keep her home until the last two weeks, where I send her back again. I find her having the week at home helps her to reset herself and be ready for a new term. It works better than keeping her home in the second week, because I'm usually too tired to concentrate on programming in the first week of the holidays, and so I can give her undivided attention while we both have a rest. It also saves money to have her home for that week, as I only have to pay half price to hold her place while she has a break.

    I do relief teaching. DD has one scheduled half day, then whenever I work.

    I still send her for the scheduled day during the holidays. Mostly because it'd be really hard on her to settle back in after weeks away. I also appreciate the time to myself.

    I think if she went full time, then I'd send her for shorter days during the holidays.

    I work full time and have a 2 yr old (my school will not let me do part time) He still went every day BUT he got to sleep in, we had breakfast together and he got picked about 2:50 every day. If i kept him at home then he would have a very hard time readjusting after 2 weeks off. I pay $100/day also so he might as well go and have a bit of a play.

    I usually keep him home for the first week because we usually go back to the city to visit friends, then in the second week he goes to childcare and I go full pelt doing my programming. He loves it there and he gets a lot more social stimulation than just at home with me, so I don't necessarily think it's better for him to miss it.
