Actually anyone can give their .02
I am planning on starting a accelerated (16 month) BSN program this fall. I have a 4.5 year old that has had a rough time being in daycare and preschool while I work (and having to miss me while I am doing pre reqs at night). Some of the people that have evaluated him say he needs more mommy time and a more consistent schedule. Right now I am in work from 8-5 and he goes to daycare in my building. I visit at lunch time. He then goes to grandma's 2 nights (5:30-8:30) and Saturday (9-3:30) while I am in class. I am done with prereqs in 3 weeks and my schedule will be just work till I find out if I should go to school this fall.
My question is since he needs a mommy time and more consistent schedule, do you think I should put school off and continue working my job that has him in day care & school from 7:30-5:30 PM a day or should I go to school that has a schedule that is not so consistent in that it changes each semester but the hours would be like:
Monday 6:45-3 PM
Tuesday 6:45-3 PM
Wed 8AM - 7PM
Friday - no school
On Monday and Tuesday AM Grandma would come over to our house and get him ready for school when he wakes up and she would watch him on Wed after school till I get out of class.
Basically working 8-5 he will be in daycare/school 40+ hours a week or school he would be in school/daycare/grandma care for 28 hours (i only counted hours he is awake for the 28 hours). Do you think the school schedule would be better or the regular work schedule when the social worker says he needs more consistently and mommy time?
