Quoting Monica♥YASDYARDFR:" I think preschool did alot for my daughter. She started in a half day program last year at three year ... [snip!] ... What happened with daycare? Every center is different so the one you went to might not have been the right fit."
Where she went, her last few days there, toddlers were eating the smurf in the bottom of the guinea pigs cage, they lied to me about diaper changes, and, finally, after dealing with those issues, LO came home with a bruise on her arm the shape and place a thumb print would be if you were jerking a kid around. That day, I walked in early and the women in her room were yelling at kids for not napping... talk about friggin' counter productive.
Almost everywhere else has super long waiting lists, or is worse with one look.
