Every mom in my Circle who has kids less than 5 years are not worried about delta variant however keeping the child with grandparents or taking care while working from home. I don’t have a family ( no parents in my side) and I don’t have the mental strength to manage toddler , infant and work . What are moms with kids less than 5 years doing this school year ?

My 3.5 year old has been in daycare pretty much all of COVID (with the exception of March-June 2020 when they were shut down). They have a good masking policy and have had very few cases, and honestly I don't have other options anyway given mine and my husband's work schedules.

Same. It’s our only viable option.

My toddler goes to daycare. Cant help it

My toddler went to daycare, my infant now will too. We talked about the risks of Covid and the delta variant, and while they are very real, we know the risk of keeping them at home while we all slowly go insane is practically guaranteed compared to the very low risk of serious health issues should either kid contract Covid. It was the right choice for us, but that doesn’t mean I believe it’s the right/only choice for everyone. Just sharing that we are okay with the risk if that makes you feel more comfortable doing it too.

Sending my kid to preschool. The reason it feels hard is because it IS hard. Being a parent is a 24/7 job, and then you’re trying to add 8+ of work on top of that. You’re trying to do at least 2 jobs at once. Where is your kids’ father? Is he also taking on this burden?

Sending my toddler to daycare. The teachers are vaccinated, and they’re reinstating previous covid procedures like temperature checks and contactless sign in and out. This at least makes me feel better. But we’re back to minimizing our own endeavors so as to minimize exposure even though my husband and I are both vaccinated.

My kids (almost 3 and 4.5) are going to preschool. They’ve been home with our nanny all of last year and are bored. Our preschool has vaccinated staff, a strict mask policy, contactless pick up and drop off, small classroom sizes with classes that don’t mix in common areas, and common areas are sanitized between kids. We have grandparents nearby that are glad to help in a jam, but they are 70 and it’s too much for them to watch two energetic preschoolers all day every day. And generally, it’s not how I want my mom and dad to spend their hard earned retirement.

like

We have no support system either. Both toddlers go to daycare. Teachers are vaccinated. Daycare put mask mandate back on. Both hubby & I have been careful this entire time- even though things eased up- & we are both also vaccinated

like

Sending to pre-K (and I have a nanny + my parents close by). Weighing risk / reward still nets out on the greater benefit for our child getting socialization and early education vs. the INCREDIBLY small risk that he gets severely sick.

Exactly this. My son is starting pre-k in the fall as we have grandparents nearby for backup but I’d rather he get a good early education and make friends.

We have grandparents at home to help but is still not enough. Would send him to school in a heart beat but he is high risk access not medically cleared yet. I’m struggling so hard

Both my daughters have been back at school since June 2020. There has not been a single case among children, one teacher had exposure but never tested positive (they closed daycare for 2 weeks when this happened). This is anecdotal of course and i expect will change once school starts and children are exposed to brothers/sisters in school. We are in a southern city with cases on the rise. I trust and verify that they are following guidance on masking etc. but I think that is all we can do at this point.

My 9 month old just started daycare. We both needed to focus on work. Does it worry me?? Yep. But it just had to happen. We made it work until she stopped napping and was super mobile then it was just chaos. We are just hoping for the best!

We just started daycare. Baby is 6 months. He caught RSV the 1st week there. So we extremely worried about about Covid. However husband is working from 7am - 10pm outside of the home and I’m WFH on a busy project. Realistically daycare is the only option at the moment so we are sending him. We also don’t live near any family.

Does anyone feel like we’re all going to get Covid? Based on the latest CDC data, it seems like there’s nothing that can contain the delta variant. It seems like the only thing we can do is slow it down long enough to get more people vaccinated.
