Hi! I'm definitely more if a lurker than a poster but I need some advise and different perspectives....
my son will be 2 in December. We started sending him to preschool, for two mornings a week, at the beginning of October, hes only ever been looked after by me, or family and we thought he would benefit from the social interaction. Since then he refuses to sleep on pre school afternoons and is my shadow all the time! I work weds and fridays and the plan was that we would change his preschool days to wed, thurs and Friday in January with a childminder dropping him at pre school on weds and Fridays and MIL collecting him on weds and my parents collecting him on Fridays.
My H and I are now starting to rethink this plan as were worried about the impact it's having on B.However I'm in two minds over the whole thing, part of me thinks we stick with the original plan, B will cope and actually he seems to enjoy preschool - he's not great at drop off but he has a good morning when hes there and I make sure that b and I do lots of things together on Mondays and Tuesday's. or we knock pre school on the head completely and think about it again in sept.
Sorry for rambling, what I think I'm asking is what would you do? Just to add, I started an evening course in sept so H puts him to bed on tues and weds, and I see him for about an hour on weds, which I think causes more problems!!! Thanks for any advice

Hi noodle! My LO is slightly younger than yours at 14 months but he started nursery in sept and has hated it not sleeping, crying when dropped off bit this week he has turned a corner and even waved me goodbye instead of crying and chasing after me! When I spoke to the staff they told me to give it 3 months and review it with them then but that some children take longer to settle than others. It's now his 8 th week and he now seems to be enjoying it! Keep preserving but you have my sympathies it's horrible thinking your taking them to somewhere they hate!
