I found a daycare close to my house- it's on the busline, like 3 minute drive, good price, etc. I went and visited and everything seemed good. The only thing is the director said he's new to this location, just moved from the location downtown. And when I asked if there was a waiting list, he said there wasn't because they just had hired new staff so they have spots open. So, obviously there is some sort of restructuring going on there. Is that a red flag?
Also- how should I transition her? She seemed overwhelmed today while we were there. Should I start her a week early for half days?
