Got an Answer?
My youngest started at 2.2 cos she was begging for 6 months and throwing a tantrum every single time she wouldn’t be left at her sisters kindy.
We didn’t need the care so it was her “extra curricular” I wasn’t going to do a settling in period if she didn’t love it I was going to pull it.
Well she didn’t even say goodbye and still threw a tantrum when it was time to leave 7 hours later.
She did one day a week for a year then this year she has done 2.
Next year I was just going to change her to kindy for her last year and she would do the standard 5 day fortnight but I ended up taking the 2 day week with longer hours and she will stay one more day at her current kindy (it’s a Montessori day care so it’s all just playing basically)
So next year as a 4 yo she will do 3 days a week.
It was hard to let go for me as I wasn’t going to send my kids to kindy at all.
But she’s loved it from the start. Gotta let them do them sometimes. 🤷🏼♀️

Here we go!
Both my kids go 4 days a week. We both work and study so it’s a necessity for us. They love daycare, we built them up to that amount of days, they didn’t just start at 4 and they cope really well. Some days my youngest gets a bit upset on drop off but he is fine after a couple of minutes. My eldest doesn’t even bat an eye when I leave. Some days I struggle to get them to leave daycare as they love it so much. I love that they love their centre and their educators. It’s makes me feel less guilty about being away from them so much.
