We love the one we put our daughter in! I'm a SAHM but we wanted her to get some interaction with other kids in a learning environment plus now that we have a baby it's nice have some alone time with him a couple of days a week.
She goes 2 times a week and learns SO much. She LOVES it and asks every single day if it's a school day. :) She only goes 2 days a week but I think it's a great thing for her and it's only 135 a month.
Anyhoo...I mentioned it to another SAHM friend of mine who is going to have a baby again soon because I thought she might want a nap or something after the baby is born. I thought it would be great for her 2 year old.
She was really rude to me and told me she thought it was rediculous for a SAHM to send her child to something like that but the program is designed for SAHMs and my daughter LOVES it.
What is your opinion?

Wow..that is an excellent price. I take my DD to gymboree with me, for some social and physical activity. I won't even tell you how much they charge, it will make you sick. I'm only doing the winter program because its too cold for the park. I go to library programs as well. While I don't have the money for a weekly program like that, I do have an arrangement with my in-laws to have her from 12-8 every Wednesday. We are about a half hour apart and they were missing her growing up when they only saw her for a few hours a month. It's great for both of us, they get quality time and I get to finish all the odds and ends around the house....and sometimes I just have a nice lunch with my girlfriends. I think your friend is a bit judgmental. I also think its healthy for mother and child to spend some time doing separate activities.
