Please tell me about family daycare, i want to hear your experiences.
Is there any kind of curriculum?
Do they take babies (9-10 months old) - how does that work if they are also looking after older kids? (Ie long daycare centres have seperate rooms but i imagine this isnt possible at family daycare).
Do they normally do similar hours to long daycare (ie 6am-6pm approx)?
We had ds down at a couple of long daycare centres since before he was born. One has now turned around & said they dont have vacancies until July (he was down to start in May) even though when we submitted the paperwork they said they definitely had spots for May 2015.
The other place has said they wont confirm whether or not he has a spot until a couple of weeks before he is due to start. That is pretty ridiculous as it would leave me in a real mess if i find out 2 weeks before i go back to work that he doesn't have a place.
There aren't really any other long daycare centres in our suburb so now im looking at family daycare options.
