My daycare centre is asking for how many days/what days we want for next year. Dd1 will be 4 and the year before school/kindy.
There are no real preschool options here, just daycare preschool options. Mind you, our daycare doesn't really have a proper transition to school program, it's basically free play and not like school at all so not sure how much it is helping. However nearly all the kids there will be going to her primary school.
I'm happy to keep her on just 1 day but worry it won't be enough to help transition/prepare her for big school 5 days a week.
If I bump it to two days I'm scared she won't cope- she's STILL clingy and a mummy's girl AT 3.5 years, she already battles me to go just once a week, doesn't really enjoy herself and when I return to work it means only 1 day at home with me.
(My mum will care for her 2 days, and I don't want mum responsible for drop off as she's a big sook and they both love the time together so will have to make it on a day I'm not at work).
