My dd has been at a childminders since she was a year old. We then moved her to 50:50 with a local nursery when she was 2yrs. She goes two days a week, is pretty well settled and it's a lovely place that recently got Ofsted Outstanding. I've had her on the waiting list for my work nursery since I started a year ago, which would be half the price and at my place of work. They've just called to say they have space for her.
The issue is...I didn't get good vibes from the nursery. It's satisfactory from Ofsted but I found it overcrowded. Further thing to consider is we have another baby now and in a year he will need to go in work nursery for at least part of the week, otherwise I can't afford to return to work. The baby bit there is less crowded, and feel a bit happier about that.
So sorry for such a long post. I'm really torn. We'd need to take at least two days now. Dd is three days in childcare while on maternity leave (2 days nursery, 1 day childminder). She's settling ok with new baby but a new nursery could freak her out. If I don't do it, I'll have two children in different nurseries next year. A potential logistical nightmare.
Any thoughts if any of that made sense?!?!
