Tale of two daycares
In the past two days I have toured two different daycares trying to find the right fit for us since our current one is closing. I am a little conflicted at the moment on which to choose. I want to hear what you guys think. Our current center seems to fall in the middle price wise.
Very close to my house so hubs could drop off and I could do more at home before picking him up
Couple hundred less a month than I am paying now
Uses the state ratios so 16 two year olds in a class
My bosses child goes there and she doesn’t have any complaints
His classroom is bigger than the one he has now
The playground is kinda small and has no climbing equipment/slides/swings for his age group
They seem to have a pretty good curriculum and other activities
Very close to where I work
Couple hundred more a month and I already pay more than in state tuition for the local state university
Top of the line daycare center
Naeyc accredited so ratios are smaller – no more than 10 kids in a class
Gross motor room
Same curriculum/company as his current daycare
If we picked this option I would probably need help from hubs to pay for it (I am currently paying for it all out of my paycheck)
If I keep him in daycare for more than 9 hours a day I get charged even more.
Which one would you guys pick? I really liked the smaller classes and daycare 2, but I am just not sure if it’s worth all of that money. Though I don’t want LM to get lost in his class and not get the attention he needs.
