Found a daycare yesterday - they are only $5/week more than what I am paying now. They are a small, family run place, all the kids there seemed very well behaved. They have heard of breath holding spells and know what they are and how to deal with them. They do lots of learning activities (ABC's, counting, days of the week, months of the year) and also cooking activities, pizza and pajama parties, and lots of art projects. They have a separate playground for each age group so the big kids can't harrass the little kids. It's closer to home so my husband can share in the drop off and pick up duties. All of the teachers there are very well educated (not just the mom's who have no job skills and need a place to work types). Oh yeah, they work on potty training with the 2 year old class too. They don't serve lunch like the place I am at now does, but that is a small price to pay for all the good things he is going to do and learn there.
I called the old place today and told them and they were very sad :(
I think Patrick will like this new place much better - he is going to start on May 11th
