So this is half a general debate, and half something that I actually need to decide upon, so any help would be great!
Which is better........a child minder or nursery?
For my specific situation, here's the situation........
My youngest is 2 and she goes to a child minder (who she LOVES) 3 times a week about 4 hrs at a time while I go to work. I'm extremely happy with the care she receives, and as I said, Shia loves going.
Once I learn to drive (fingers crossed!) I was planning on sending her to nursery (so that would be around September time) because I want her to get used to playing with other kids more and socialising etc.
The thing is, she loves going to the child minders so much, that I'm starting to wonder about whether it's worth uprooting her?
So what do you think, in general, and in my situation. Do you think she would benefit from going to nursery more? I've always thought kids should go to nursery before they start school to help "ease them in".
Sorry, it's long winded! lol :)
