Children’s day care nurseries are great for developing the social skills of children when they are young. Skills such as learning to play with others and sharing are just two such social skills which can be fostered while at nursery school. The best children’s nurseries will know how to accommodate each and every child, allowing each to thrive in a home away from home environment.
For a parent actively looking for the best nursery for their child, you can go by the Ofsted inspection, but just as important is your gut feeling, your initial instincts about a place. Is the nursery appropriate for your child? Is it welcoming and friendly? Are the staff fully engaged in what they’re doing? Do the children seem occupied and happy? These and many more questions will be answered by you in your mind when you first look around a nursery.
As a parent, you can rely on nurseries to provide full-time or part-time day care throughout the year, so there is always flexibility as a parent as to when your child is in nursery school, while your child will have a place away from home in which to play, learn, and socialise.
