I am back at work in the next few months (DS 9months) however my first choice of nursery has no places until late in the year. The only other one I would consider has space but I am still unsure on it, it is a small room for 9 babies and I just didn't get the same feeling as I did on the first. There is no option on when I go back to work, we cannot afford for me to have any more time off
I feel I have 3 choices and so unsure of what to do for the best.
1) Start in second choice nursery and then move him after 3 months to the first choice. 2) Keep him in the second choice nursery for the foreseeable future. 3) Go to a childminder for the first 3 months and then start at the first choice nursery?
I know the most logical is number 2 but I just can't shake the feeling of it not the right nursery for him.
Thanks for your response nanny I would prefer a nursery long term as I cannot arrange last minute care if the childminder was sick and I couldn't take the day off work at short notice. With a nursery they have more staff to cover sickness etc.
Option 2 for consistency then. Can re-evaluate it later to see if a move is needed. Nurseries are as good as their management and staff, which changes, so you may find that you like the place better in a few months time.
