So DS has FINALLY gotten a spot at the childcare down the end of our street. It will only be one day a week, it's more for him to socialise and to give me a little break (to be honest)
He's 16 months old and he's never been to childcare or anything like that. Family have watched him but only for a few hours at a time and it was quite rare. He's always with me or dp.
I am FREAKING OUT!!!! He's my baby. I'm so nervous. He's going for an orientation next week and starts the following Monday. What would you ladies recommend in terms of how long he should stay on the first day? I was thinking of letting him go in the morning and having his first sleep there and lunch and play then picking him up before his arvo sleep? Just so it's not a massive day for him. Or should we be leaving him there the whole day?
Any tips to help me calm down about the whole idea would be great as well? I'm ready to cry and he hasn't even started?!
