As usual, my husband did the pick up that evening. And of course he went to the FIRST provider (the one my son was no longer attending) because of course that's where he had gone for the past year.
The provider took one look at my husband in the doorway and kindly told him, "Remember, your son is at a new child care today." Fortunately, she knew the new child care provider and was even able to give him directions to the new location.
So...some of us go through toddler separation anxiety with our toddlers while we're at work , and some of us don't worry about it at all. And kudos to our child care providers who are partners with parents of all different persuasions and perspectives.
