That is how your ipad is designed to work.
Maybe try resetting network settings. If all else fails you can do a back up and restore as new to be certain there is no issue with your software.

Your iPad should keep your trusted WiFi connections and automatically connect as you describe. Doe it autoconnect with your WiFi at your home?
