While going through the daycare hassle, I was also considering my career review. I applied for another job and eventually changed my job that gave me the opportunity of enrolling my son at the daycare close to my new job. My husband and I checked the review about the daycare and there were lots of good reviews about them. We also visited the place just to be sure no stone is left unturned. We were not disappointed. They were pleasant and took care of my son like he was their child. The daycare had a family atmosphere. Dayo was about 6 months when he started at the daycare. He was already sitting up, rolling over, making some babbling noises, grabbing and reaching for things and now more observant of his surroundings. The daycare reinforced the similar structure. Also, they had a lot of activities like taking school pictures for the kids, went on field trips to the zoo, Universal Soul Circus of course accompanied by an adult. We got feedback from the daycare that Dayo is quite demanding in regards to attention, he likes to be held, he will eat beyond when he is full. In their own words, ‘he is spoiled.’During this time we saw Dayo grow up before our eyes by playing with the other kids, grabbing on them, walking and talking until he was 15 months.
The daycare opened a new location closer to my home and with the same standards and staff. So I moved him to this daycare. This daycare has placed emphasis on him learning lessons taught by the teacher and having the students do different activities that are displayed on the bulletin board. At this stage as he is progressing as a toddler that is playing with everything around him, walking around, less dependent on people, his sounds are becoming more distinct and his personality is developing. He enjoys watching animated cartoons and listening to music. He is able to be more expressive with his emotions with facial expressions, gestures and body language.
