move nursery for just one term?

If I were in your position I would move her to the new place for one term. But that's because my DD1 settles really easily in any setting and so wouldn't find the transition difficult. We've had to mess around with her childcare for unavoidable reasons (family illness) and I've been amazed by how happy she is to get to know new carers.

If you are worried that your daughter will find the transition difficult then definitely leave her where she is.

Hello, thank you for your replies. I do work, and although my concerns are major, they relate more to how badly staff communicates with me, rather than with my daughter's safety. Thanks again, I do feel better after your posts!

I don't see the point in unsettling her tbh if you are definitely going to get a place at the pre school from Jan...

I agree with HSMM, it depends very much on why you are using the place and what your concerns are. If you are working and they are minor i would keep her where she is - if you are not working and/or they are major, i would keep her home until Jan - she is still on the young side for nursery anyway.

Do you work while she's there, or can you simply keep her home for a term.

Otherwise ... If she's happy and your complaints are not anything serious, then perhaps you should leave her where she is.

Sorry, I forgot to say that she's 2 1/2.

dear mums (and dads), I'm looking for some advice, please.

My daughter started nursery in April and despite my best intentions it's going really badly. She took about a month to settle in, which I gather isn't unheard off. She's now OK there, but I'm not. There are lots of small and big things I've politely complained about, but clearly the manager doesn't welcome constructive criticism, as she threatened to refuse to take my daughter in the nursery any longer if I kept complaining. I felt humiliated and powerless to move her immediately, as there were no better alternative nursery.
I resigned myself to her spending another term at the nursery until January 2014, when she has already a place at a local pre-school. I've now just found out a newly opened nursery which could take her from Sep. till January. Should I move her for just a term? I really don't know how easily she'll settled in the new place. I would feel guilty if she doesn't settle in easily, and I would equally feel bad if she continues to attend the current nursery when perhaps I could be happier if she went to the newly opened one. What would you do? Thank you for yours answers.
