Go with your gut! I would rather pay extra than have my child in a centre with multiple problems. I looked at 8 centres before putting my daughter in, all have vacancies as we have too many centres & each one gave me different vibes for different reasons. Everyone thought I was being too picky but the last one we visited is perfect for her & she loves it.

Well a bit of an update,
DS has been at this place for 4 days and out of those 4, on 3 of those days, there has been something I've been unhappy about.
Yesterday it was that he had dirty sandy hands whilst having his afternoon tea (when I picked him up)
I asked the woman who works in the office 'what's the deal with the kids washing their hands before eating?'
Her reply was 'they have to wash their hands before eating'
So I said, well my son has been eating orange outside and he's covered in sand, so she says 'oh, that's the only time they don't wash their hands, in the late afternoon when they have their fruit outside'
She then goes on to tell me that they use hand sanitiser, but if I want them to wash his hands then she will tell the carers...
Again. WTF? What is that teaching the kids? If you're too lazy to wash hands before your meal, just squirt this hand sanitiser on?
Anyway I told her YES I wanted his hands washed!! Hand sanitiser doesn't get rid of the sand!!
She looked a bit miffed. Argh!!
Anyway DH and I haven't moved him yet obviously, because we haven't found anywhere else for him yet.
We're going to look at a new centre in 2 weeks time which is the only one DH can get there with me.

@SAgirl, can you visit some daycares without your DH? Surely he will trust your judgement? Also, maybe post on BH asking for good centres in your area? (Or don't if it makes you uncomfortable)
I can't believe these things are happening and their excuse is always "oh, that's how it's done". What the hell?

He is happy for me to choose a daycare, he does trust my opinion, but I would prefer him to come with because I made the mistake of choosing this one so id be happier if he came with. 4 eyes are better than 2 after all!!

Yeah I know, I don't want to leave him in this centre, it's just that I'm reluctant to pull him out and move him in case the next place is the same or worse!
One has come up which may be an option, only thing is it's more expensive and we are yet to see it. I've heard it's good though.. I just don't know what to do.
