What's the kindest way to move my 3 yr old dd from a centre that she loves to another centre? We have moved house and the commute to the old centre won't be doable when her older brother goes to school next year.
Currently she goes 3 days a week. Should we gradually transfer (2 days at old centre and 1 day at the new place) or just end our enrollment at the old place and start the full 3 days at the new place?

Subbing as we'll be doing this
I think we're going to stop and then start the full days straight away as I think its might confuse her to go to both? Its hard when they are so happy where they are

We changed dd at the start of the year, we just explained to her that the new dc was super close to home, and was next door to kindy where she'll go next year, and she was really excited but didn't really get she wouldn't be going back to old dc. We took a week off between old/new. The transition was a lot easier than we expected. She was 3.5 at the time.

Every kid is different but with DD1 we did half and half for a bit (out of necessity with places etc) and it confused her a bit
Plus she preferred one over the other so she would get frustrated because she didn't understand why she couldn't just go to her favourite.

We transferred DS from a centre he and we LOVED with educators he adored, to a centre closer to our new home.
I was worried about it and suffered huge anxiety about it.
DS was 18 months when we moved him so it was a different age.
But what we did was have a special send off from the old centre. Then did a few days where my DH took DS to the new centre to play while DH stayed. Then DS went for a morning or two and DH collected him after lunch.
Then it became collecting him after a sleep and then the following week, he started going full time. DS has been in full time daycare since he was 4 months old so he was very used to being at daycare. That plan worked really well for us.
