    My kids don't mind the very early or very late finish. They are usually there 6.15am-5pm. Whilst I try to get them dressed I have dropped them off on pjs when they stuff around. They always eat Brekky at daycare. Occ if I know I will be late I pack them dinner too and daycare gives them dinner at 5pm. They have been doing this since 2.5&7mths old.

    I think your ds will be fine.

    He is 21 months. Most days he enjoys daycare though the afternoon is his worst time. When i get there to pick him up he is often sitting by the door sobbing. They tell me he quite often does that. They try distract him but mostly doesn't work and they dont have any others that do it.

    I am probably over analysing and worrying about nothing

    Given that it's a once-off meeting I would do the earlier drop-off and go to the meeting. Especially if you're feeling like an outsider, missing these team meetings will likely make you feel further disconnected. If it was every week it would be a different story.

    Your DS will be ok, he might have a longer sleep at daycare that day or be a little grumpy that night but he'll be fine. It's probably harder on you really!

    Maybe even check with your daycare centre, see if they are happy for him to arrive in PJs and have breaky there on this occasion. My centre would be fine with it but they don't like parents making a habit of bringing their kids in PJs.

    I would just take DS in Pjs and get them to give him breakfast there. Given its a once a year thing I wouldn't bother asking to finish early.

    I am planning on ringing daycare to check and make sure its ok just have to wait until he goes down for a nap. I guess like any mum i just hate being away from him longer than i have too

    Does daycare do breakfast? Mine does until 7.30. I get him there around 7, so all I have to do is change him and drop him off and not stuff around trying to feed him.

    Also just wondering, if he struggles with afternoons perhaps the earlier drop off/pick up will be easier on him anyway (if you are able to leave a bit earlier).

    I'd go if it was just a once off.

    Daycare can give him breakfast as long as i provide it. Hopefully i can leave a bit earlier to lessen the strain on pick up time for both of us
