I'd be upset too. Have you considered family daycare? There are some downsides (like if educator is sick or on holidays, you need a plan b), but if you can find a great educator the upsides are worth considering. I have utmost trust in my FDC educator, and I appreciate the direct line of communication with the person actually caring for my little one whilst I'm at work. I visited a lot of centres and FDC educators, and came down to two lovely FDC educators that I really clicked with. I've since made friends with some of the other mums and DS has made some lovely friends - our educator seems to attract like minded mums and children. Day care is such a personal choice though, and what suits one parent or child might not suit the next.
