    Default Changing daycare

    Has anyone changed daycare centres for their toddler? If so how did your toddler cope?

    It looks like DS (nearly 1.5) is going to be offered a spot at our preferred centre (better location will make our life a little easier). But he is happy enough at his current daycare and I'd hate to upset him and start him on the path to having an terrible childhood! (I'm a worrywart !).

    We changed DD at about the same age when a new centre opened around the corner from us.

    I'm so glad we changed to a centre closer to home. DD had a great few years at the new centre, including doing the kindy program there and she made lots of little friends there over the years.

    The biggest advantage came this year when she started prep because she had five little kindy friends in her prep class at the local school which has made her transition to school seamless.

    I also reckon better to do it as young as possible!

    We will be in the same boat at some point as our daycare is CBD but we want one near home. Just can't get in anywhere!!!

    If its a great centre with great staff, he should be happy.

    We have moved centres (due to moving house) and my daughter was a few months off 2 and maybe had one bad week before settling - LOVES the centre now and her friends (been there 1yr)

    If he is happy at the current centre I would be reluctant to change him.

    It so difficult to gauge exactly what a centre is going to be like. Sometimes first impressions aren't always right either.
    I've used what ended up being a shocker of a centre. So once i got DS into a centre he was relatively content to go to i left him there even though it was a fair drive away.
