I need some advice please. I am currently 7 months pregnant, working full time and my daughter is in a wonderful daycare full time. Pre school is starting next week and I can't decide if I should enroll her or leave her in daycare. Her daycare has an approved preschool program, however when I go on maternity leave she will not be able to attend daycare. I am worried about that six weeks she won't be learning. I will be able to work with her, but with a newborn, I can't give her 100% of my attention. Does anyone have any opinions or advice on which is better. Or any personal experiences. Preschool or daycare? Also, all of the other children my daughter's age at the daycare are all going to start preschool. She will be the oldest child left. I almost feel like by not sending her, I am depriving her of a good start to a good education. I am so confused about what to do.
Why can't she go to the daycare while your on maternity leave? I don't do preschool, so I would probably say keep her with you, but that's only my opinion.
I do daycare in my home, so we already do all the preschool stuff. And actually, the girls kept very busy when I had my daughter in May. I had bought some new things for them to do, and it worked out nice!
