as i'm not happy with the childcare arrangements??

it is run by childrens centre, was due to start this week (1 x 2 hr session), they rang last week to say they could definitely offer childcare but not sure what yet( i was under the impression that it would be in the centre though), lady jst rang to say they were arranging child care in the form of a childminder who would collect dd at the start of the course and bring her back at the end.

i have no beef with childminders whatsoever before anyone flames me and i really do appreciate that they were trying to help me do the course, but i have pulled out as i am not happy for dd to go somewhere i don't know with someone i don't know.

tell me i'm not being precious?

you are not being precious.

i'm a cm and would not want to do this. and most parents i know would also have problems doing this.

how can she effectivly care for your and other dc if she doesnt know them, have no time to settle them. this seems very silly imo

oh good. my gut instinct was that it was a bit strange, but the woman was so enthusiastic...and then so put out...

it's a pity, this childrens centre is v well meaning but not very organised

No way I'd consider that. You're not being precious, of course not. That's treating children as pieces of luggage to be transported here and there with no consideration for their feelings.
