childminders v nurseries

My daughter is now 3 and goes to a childminder 3 days a week and a nursery that is attached to her future school 2 days a week. Since she has gone to the nursery her behaviour at the childminder has got worse - getting so bad that the childminder has just given me 4 weeks notice to end our contract to look after her. She cannot go to the nursery full time as they do not do long hours. Do I send her to another childminder on the 3 days or try to get her into another nursery as she is really enjoying her 2 days at the nursery???

Look around at both options but I would say trying to keep her in the nursery/pre-school attached to the school is probably a good thing long term as she will then adjust to being at school easier with luck.

I think you need to look into why her behaviour has changed.

thanks for the advice I have asked at the Nursery she is currently going to and she is a 'total angel' at the nursery not being naughty and being really polite and helpful so I think that she has just outgrown her childminder. I have looked at a couple of nurseries and she seems to like both of them so I think that's the next step
