I am thinking on switching my kids daycare. The reason being is I want to save money and plus the daycare I want to switch them to is close to a better school then where my daughter will attend. That's what got my search started in the first place I wanted a better school for my children.
Any who. The daycare the are at now I am now paying $250 more then when they first started 2 years ago. I thought it was suppose to go down as they get older but it just keeps going up and even if they go part time there isn't much savings in money maybe $150 a month.
I am playing close to $1000 a month for my two kids now, the schools near there are very piss poor rated and behind academically. Its a large daycare. I love it and the people are great.
The one I am thinking on I will be paying $800 then it goes down to $700 once my DD started Kindergarten in the fall. Its like 1/3 the size of the other one. There is only one toilet for the 16 kids that are in the room. Its off a very busy street as well.
I have a friend who's DD goes there and he says he loves it but she is also in the infant room. My kids will be in the preschool older kids room. It's the same room. The schools near are rated very good and either on track or above academically.
I am so torn on what to do. The smallness bothers me and so does the single toilet. I know there is nothing wrong with small day cares I am just use to a larger one.
Both daycares follow the same guidelines.
What would YOU do? Any advice?
