Hi Everyone

I'll be returning to work soon and have found a nursery I really really like. The only problem is it can only take my 9 month baby two days a week. So should I opt for another nursery that I'm less keen on full time or put her in to two nurseries part time while I wait for a full time place to come up in my first choice (could be next summer they say!) Worried about causing major disruption for my little one. Anyone else had a similar experience?

i wouldn't use two nurseries, particularly for a child so young. Could you find a childminder to have her part time and put her in the 2nd choice nursery the rest of the week? or even just skip the nursery altogether - find a childminder until the 1st choice nursery offers a place - better for a baby imo (having worked in nurseries and as a childminder)

I would opt for one nursery full time

Two nurseries would be too much adjustment for one so young IMVHO

I think a childmeinder would be much better.

Hi everyone

Thanks for your advice. My little one is already settling in to the first choice nursery for a day a week and won't be settling in to any other form or child care until I get a job (which could be any time) so, because it'll be staggered, I'm not sure if that'll make settling in to a second nursery or a childminder easier???

My daughter goes to two nurseries and has done since she was 18 months old.
She settled really well and enjoys the variety of it. Last year she did 1 day and 3 days, but I've evened it up this year to 2 and 2.
