I posted this on the regular DC board but thought I would come over here for some insight :-)
So DD has been with the same in-home care provider since she was 6 months old. I have been really happy with the care she has received and I really like the provider. I personally feel it is a good time to move to a larger center with kids more her age.
I received a phone call yesterday saying the DD got into the daycare that we've had her on the waitlist for for about 6 months. It's great and we accepted the spot but now here's the question:
I don't have an exact date of when DD can start (maybe in two or three weeks since we have to do Orientation). Should I give my current daycare provider a heads up/informal "hey we will be moving DD within the month" before I give her the formal "DD will no longer be attending after XX date" letter?
I have no worries that this provider will have a problem filling the spot. She is at full capcity as is and really has a solid business practice. I just want to be courteous in case she wants to maybe put some feelers out, ya know.
