There's some internal politics going on at my super awesome home daycare. I don't know if this is in fact true, but I've been told by the primary caregiver than the owner is thinking of selling the daycare. I'm not sure if the owner is actually doing this or just saying it to get rid of the caregiver, because she cannot afford to pay her. Whatever the case may be, there's a chance that a) the primacy careworker will leave in a month or b) the entire daycare will be sold and may close.
Now the entire reason DD is at that daycare is the primary careworker, who is there every day from 8h00 to 14h00. She's an awesome motherly-type who loves children, cooks awesome healthy vegetarian food every day, and most of all, DD is very attached to her. I was going to suggest that I would follow her wherever she would work next, but she says she's thinking of opening her own daycare but in an area of the city that's too far for me to travel. I already drag DD across the city morning and night...
So, I'm thinking of trying to find DD a daycare that's more in my neck of the woods. The problem is STBX. He picks DD up from her current daycare 1 evening a week, takes her to his place, feeds her dinner and then I pick her up around 18h30. If I were to put DD in a daycare in the east end of the city, which would mean much less travel for DD, for me and my parents who pick her up 4 days a week for me, then STBX would have to travel by subway to pick DD up and then backtrack towards his place.
Needless to say, this lazy man would NOT be happy. We do not have anything legal in place now (legal proceedings are pending and he should be served soon).
I don't want to deny him access to DD, but he does live at the other end of the city from where we live right now, and I feel that I already impose a lot on my parents by asking them to pick DD up 4 nights week. I don't know how to find a closer daycare that DD will like AND that will make STBX happy...
