What do you prefer? Do you care?
They are splitting 2 infant classes into 2 toddler ones but doing it by age instead of developmental ability. The younger kids are June and after. My daughter is July so she will be the oldest in the class. She is 13 months and all the other babies will be 8-12 months. The other class they will be 14 months-18 mo. My daughter "hangs" with the older babies now in her class. She does all the things they do- feed herself, stand alone, etc . She doesn't walk on her own yet but she is trying and I bet she will be within a week or so. None of the younger babies are on that level.
It really bothers me that my daughter will be the oldest. I am fearful she will be treated like the younger ones and not pushed to do more. Even one of the teachers confided she always worries about the oldest in the class regressing to the level of the younger babies.
I spoke to the director to no avail. She is firm on how she split the kids. Am I crazy to feel this way? I am thinking about finding another daycare because of this but I don't know if I'm being crazy mom or my concerns are legit. I appreciate any feedback.
