Ah, man! My favorite daycare provider at the group daycare Brady goes to is leaving again! I had a girl I liked a lot and then she left to have a baby and was replaced by someone who's really great. She always went above and beyond, doing lots of craft and science projects with the older ones. And she formed a special bond with Brady. Now that he's getting older, I was looking forward to them doing those projects together. But I know turnover at daycares is notoriously high because they're terribly underpaid, unfortunately. And as he moves on to school, he'll have a new teacher every year. It's just the way life goes, but I'm still bummed about it!

That's a bummer! I hope they get someone good to take her place! Yes, daycare turnover is really high sadly. I did a report once on childcare providers at school and I knew turnover was high but I was shocked at how high(can't remember exact percentage but it was high). I'm sorry you're having troubles with this daycare.

How did the meeting with the director go?

I always get bummed when the kids lose a good teacher/provider. I hope the new one is just as wonderful.

Thanks! I hope so too.

The meeting went as well as it could have. I thought the director was understanding and polite, which is all you can ask for. She understood where I was coming from. She told me that when Brady moves up to the next room, it should be a lot better because they just take 1 long nap (which kind of surprises me, but she says it works). I guess he'll move there when he's 13-16 months depending on availability and his readiness and at that point, the kids sleep on cots all at the same time. I think having the room dark and quiet will be a big help.

And actually, it hasn't been too bad this week yet in terms of his naps but I think they're leaving him in the swing (where he's allowed to have a blanket). I'm thinking it's a "don't ask, don't tell" kind of thing, lol. I pretend not to notice that his naps are suddenly better and don't ask questions and they don't admit that they aren't moving him like they're "supposed to."

While I was writing this, I just got a phone call from the daycare saying that Brady was scooting towards a friend and the friend bit him on the forehead! Ouch!! Luckily, it didn't break the skin. I swear, if it's not one thing it's another right?
