My LO is 14 months. He's been in the infant class in daycare since he was 3 months old. They move up to the toddlers class after they're 1yr+, can walk, can eat normal food, and drink only from a sippy cup. He's doing all of the above (has been for several months). He's also been talking for about a month+ - and is picking up more words each day.
Recently - all the other toddlers who were in the infant class (4 total) got moved to the toddler class. My son is the only one left behind. There are a couple of other kids who are 1 and still in the infant class, but they aren't walking at all. The rest of the kids in there are babies - 6mos or younger.
When I asked when my LO will move up - I was told he should be moved by the first of the year, but I didn't get any reason why he wasn't moved up with all the other kids. His teachers say they've been pushing to get him moved over - and what I'm gathering is that it's basically an issue of room more than anything else.
I don't like that he was the only one left behind. I also don't lik that they're basing the move off of room or other superficial issues versus a child's developmental needs. That's a whole month+ with him in a class with basically all babies. He's very social child and would thrive in the other room. I'm worried him staying where he is will make him regress a little. I also feel like the people who make the decisions at the daycare are brushing off my concerns.
I know a lot of this is the momma bear in me coming out, so am I crazy to be pretty (ok VERY) upset over this?
