When my son turned one in January, I decided it’s time to start spreading our wings. There was much controversy about the issue of when to put a baby in garderie when the mom doesn’t work including the following suggestions:
- Start by 9 – 12 months
- Start the spring after his first birthday
- Wait until he can at least walk
- Skip garderie altogether
So I decided to test the waters with baby classes. I tested out a few classes including sensory, art & music and gym before deciding to enroll him in the gym class. And what a difference! He’s more curious, attentive, sociable and confident in new situations. Granted he cried the first few times but by the third time, he was independent and loving it!
As I watch his interests and skills develop so rapidly, I’ve decided to enroll him in a garderie in a few months so my hunt has begun. I’m still not sure what exactly I’m looking for. But I know I should look for reputation, cleanliness, curriculum, teachers, menu but I’m also going with my intuition.
As a new mom, I would sure appreciate another mom’s feedback on a few questions that I have!
