So DD is now 27 months, and has been in day care since 18 months.  First two months in a center that turned out to be really awful, then we switched her to a Montessori-type school where she has really thrived.  She bonded really well with her teachers and the class she was in was small (two teachers and typically 4-6 kids) so she got lots of attention.


She's now moved up to the next class and things aren't going nearly so well.  The class is bigger (I think 3-4 teachers and about 12 kids) and the teachers' style is really different, they are kind of military for a bunch of two year olds and not particularly nurturing imho.


Should we switch day cares again?  It seems crazy to switch schools every time she hits a new classroom and doesn't get along with the teacher?  But I don't want her to be miserable and I don't see how this is going to change as the teachers are who they are. :(

Me, DH, DD1 (2009), DD2 (2011), and DS (2015).

How long has she been in the new class? Some kids just take longer than others to adjust to new situations. DD3 is in daycare and was recently switched from the toddler to pre-k room. It's been a bit rough but I know she'll adjust fine if I give her a little more time. I wouldn't switch unless there were other problems too.
