Ds2 will be kinder age next year (3) and I have accepted a placement in a council run kinder. The hours are short but when I work, my mum can help with pickup/drop off etc.
The only thing is, I actually prefer Ds1's Childcare/kinder program! Although it's much more expensive (I'm out of pocket around $57 per day x 2 per week), it's actually a fantastic program!
I'm in Melbourne, it's a Casa Bambini centre and his teacher has a Master in Education and does amazing things with the kids.
Am I mad choosing child care option?!
Ps- he won't join the kinder room until his 3yrs and around 9months, before that he'll be in pre kinder.
