Re: What Age did you child start daycare?

DD -
5 mths-9 mths: a friend watched her along with her own 4yo DD. DD loved it, never cried at drop off
11.5mths-1y 9m: home daycare, loved it, never cried
2y11m-3y 9m: different home daycare - loved it, never cried at drop off, sometimes cried at pickup (didn't want to go home)
4y11m: started Kindergarten, attends after school program on-site (classified as a "center") - loves it, has never cried

DS -
13mths-1y10m: home daycare - loved it, never cried at drop off, sometimes cried at pick-up (didn't want to leave)
3y1m-present: different home daycare - loves it, never cries, wants to stay there all the time, cries on the weekends when I tell him there's no daycare today.

In addition, my kids go/went to a preschool starting around 2yo. The first year is 1 hr 2x/wk, the second year is 2hrs 2x/wk, and the pre-k year is 3hrs 2x/wk.
DD -
started the 2yo program at 2y2m - loved it, never cried
started the 3yo program at 2y11m - difficult transition, had a few days when she cried at drop-off
started the pre-k program at 3y11m - loved it, never cried
DS -
started the 2yo program at 2y1m - loved it, never cried
started the 3yo program at 3y1m - loves it, never cries
(will start the pre-k program next Aug)
