The other day I was discussing with my boyfriend daycares. My son is hopefully going back to daycare by June. I am moving up the waiting list for Apple; daycare assistance in my state (PA). It's a slow process but hey we are moving along!
I was saying I didn't know where I wanted to take my 3 year old son. My boyfriend suggested returning to where he used to go and has gone since he was a baby. There lies my issue. My son went to the same daycare from 3 months to around 2 2 and half then I could no longer afford it due to losing assistance. I loved the daycare. The teachers were amazing. The center was well run and well controlled. They offered so much for the kids. Waters tables and moon bounces in the summer. Plays put on by teachers. Fire truck visits. It was amazing.
But when we left, the daycare assistance people called the daycare to let them know I was cut. The director called me to let me know. When I came to pick him up, I went to his room and all his stuff was gone. There was nothing with his name on it either. So I went up to the office (which I had passed on my way) and asked. They told me it had all been packed up because they knew I couldn't pay to keep him. Those bags ripped apart on my way to my car thus spilling tons of his stuff everywhere. I was so upset and hurt.
My boyfriend says I should put that aside. That is no reason my son should not go back to a place he loved. I see his point. I hardly trust anyone with my child. His daycare took wonderful care of him. I miss that place. I doubt I'd find anywhere else I would like as much. Should I just bite the bullet and go talk to the director again about letting my son come back? It's really my issue not my son's. Why should he suffer because I had a problem with them?
