That’s what I was initially told too but I just kept agitating for a move and they did eventually find a spot during the year as kids moved around. It really is not acceptable and it’s a huge bug bear of mine that kids at the younger end of a cohort are placed at a further disadvantage because of the  annual calendar year shift of kids. Places in the older age groups are filled with new to the Centre kids and then come March/April when the tail end of a cohort really needs to be moved up the older groups are all full/no places, soz! They were going to skip one of my kids from toddlers (12-24m, 10kids) to prekindy (3-4yrs, 24kids) 🤯 My kid is cruisy as but even I baulked at that.

They moved my second up when he started beating up the babies because he was bored and left unattended all the time - he was 25 months and they were babies. They soon magically found a spot in the older room for him after day 3 of this behaviour.

I would try a daycare with three rooms if that is an option.

My son's daycare had a baby room that worked closely with a toddler room.  When they started walking or otherwise seemed ready they moved up to the toddler room.

Having said that we had a lot of issues at daycare which actually turned out to be more issues with my son and an OT did a great job of helping us.  She did about 8 sessions in his daycare.
