I WOH part-time. My kiddos have both been home with Grandma (my mom) or Grandpa (FIL). On rare days a few close friends or my sister have filled in. But DD starts preschool on Tuesday and DS will also be attending the same program one morning a week. Grandma will still be doing the lions share of child care. This is a wonderful program, min. of Bachelor's degreed lead teacher in every room, cool naturally based outdoor play space, totally developmentally appropriate/play/child based classes. They do a nice blocks of time scheduling system that enables me to only pay for what I need but still be able to add time if my mom can't make a day or something. I feel very comfortable about the care they will be receiving. But it's still hard on ME to be leaving them in daycare! What do I need to be thinking of/aware of that I might be forgetting? How do I help DS make the transition from the one on one Grandma care he has been receiving to a center? (Although they are a 1 to 2 ratio in the infant room) What about DD and her first time away in a group setting? Right now she's mostly geeked about her new lunch box <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Thanks!
