Last spring the Director and Assistant Director quit the same day w/o notice from my daughter's day care. Ever since then there's been a lot of employee turnover and children leaving (though some were due to job loss/economic reasons, etc.) so it's been a little crazy. My daughter is extremely adaptable, even when she had a teacher for all of 2 months before she left! Anyway, a brand-new day care is opening up and some moms I know are going to send their kids there when it opens up next month. We went to an open house this weekend and really liked it. The owners are very nice and seem competent (current day care is corporate owned) and their fees are competitive so a little less than what we pay now, plus no BS fees, and a free week offer, etc. My biggest concern is that the new place is further from my house and my job, which means a longer commute for me @ night (my husband drops off and I pick up) when I already drive 45 minutes during rush hour. Now we also have an infant so we're paying a lot for day care and of course we want the best. My 2 year old is happy where she is, but I'm sure she'd adapt to the new place. I'm torn. Advice, please!!!
