Impact on swapping nurseries?

Hi all

I have an 8 month old DD and I'm thinking about going back to work in 8 weeks. My problem is, my first choice of nursery won't be available until July at the earliest. I can get her into another good nursery in the meantime, it's just a bit more of a hassle to get to, but I could cope for a few months.
My main worry would be the impact of changing nurseries on my LO. does anyone have any experience or opinions on whether this would be a bad idea?

Could you get a nanny for a few months, so it's not such a big change?

I personally think it's a huge change

We swapped nurseries when dd was about 18 months. She settled in much more easily second time round.

Depends on the child as much as anything. Swapped DD1 after about 4 or 6 months, aged about 12months, she happily took it in her stride, but she's the one who always settled easily. DD2 would take ages to settle after a minor staff change let alone moving rooms, so I hate to think what a nursery swap would have been like for her!
