Today has been the final straw in considering changing sitters for my son. But although I'd like to start looking around I'm worried about what affect it will have on him, he's been there since he was 11 weeks old & does great.
For the most part the sitter is great, in home care, spotless home, pre-school type curriculum for kids...he has lots of buddies there & has learned to play/talk so well from being there. In the beginning I thought she was wonderful, now I just feel she must be getting burnt out on kids...
But I have many gripes about the way she's running the daycare and the amount of time she's gone with carpool and daughter's activities and leaving kids and parents to communicate with her helper, who is not the one I'm paying!! We've had a crazy week & I've yet to have a chance to give her a heads up on our schedule changes due to Grandma's death/funeral as of this past TUESDAY...and have to hope helper will get it all right. (have only seen her once this week including morning/evening to give an example)...too many examples to go into...enough to make me want to change, but I'm just worried about him adjusting.
Anyway, I'd like to here any advice or personal experience out there
Doesn't it seem like bad things happen in mulitples!? Ugh, one of those days
