Trying to find a good playgroup and then trying to get in touch with the teacher for a spot in lakewood is almost impossible! If you don’t have relatives or friends with kids that age I don’t know how people do it...is it this bad everywhere and I just don’t know?

I don't remember it being like this years ago Smile, though there were always experienced Morahs that filled up quickly.

Recently one of my relatives wanted to send her DD to a certain playgroup, and the Morah is a friend of mine. I called her on my relative's behalf, and she said what is this, seminary? But she did acknowledge that she fills up really fast, lots of siblings, and has a waiting list....B"H she did take my relative's child.

And B"H my cousin (thru marriage) will likely take my nephew (sister's child) for next year. But it's nuts that protektzia is needed for toddlers.

I guess the answer, like schools, is that we need more playgroups!

From my experience only "younger" groups are super hard to find. Kids with end of year birthdays are doomed

Assume you're checking the Masa Umatan ads and contacted local day cares?

At our excellent OOT JCC daycare, the waiting list for an infant under 12 months old is 2.5 years. In other words, most of the babies on the list will age out of the infant room before they get a spot. I put down a deposit on my youngest's spot before he was even conceived. Good childcare can be hard to find, even when money is no object.

For a couple of years zeva krieger(zirchona livracha) had made a rule that playgroup registration should not be before tu b'shvat and most playgroup moros listened. I thought it would last but as soon as she was nifteres it stopped right away!
Really sad.
Especially for younger kids with border line ages!

Established moros usually don't advertise.
