I finally got my full time teaching job (posted about a few days ago). Unfortunately with that means my 3 year old is going to have to do some sort of daycare program. My husband works an odd shift (he just got promoted to Resource Planning and is the weekend wrap around help that also comes with a hefty raise.) His schedule is Fri-Mon 8am-6:30pm but he is off Tues-Thurs. So she would only really need care Mon and Fri. I have been looking around at daycares and most offer only fulltime or two days a week at Tues/Thurs or three days at Mon/Wed/Fri
I found one that is well below our price range had a few friends recommend it, and it is right across the street from us. I walk in and they are watching TV. I called my friend whose child attends there and she said they are always watching TV at drop off and pick up time. I am very apprehensive my husband keeps saying "it's only for one year" she will be in attendance, but I feel like she needs something more educational. They do work on handwriting, but at the same time we are pretty strict on screen time.
I just want opinions.
The center listed above is NOT a home daycare center it is a daycare facility. I posted about how uncomfortable I am with the center on my Facebook and got a lot of responses. I toured a center today which offers Part time at 2 days 3 days or full time. The 2 and 3 day options are super affordable the three day option just being 5 dollars more than the other facilities full time option. We decided on that center it was small, no TV, a curriculum they use, and affordable. She will attend the 3 day a week option because if my husband works overtime an extra day (which he does a lot in nov and dec) we have the option to choose whatever day she attends.
I wanted to thank everyone for input and suggestions I feel so much better about this place. It is a little farther out of our way, but it will still work and I won't dread sending her every morning.
