Choosing a day nursery is such an important first step in ensuring that your child starts off on the right track. There are so many nurseries to choose from that the options may seem overwhelming at first. However, there are some ways that you can help yourself to make the best decision for your child.
Before making a decision on which day nursery to use, take a look around the local area and see where your child would thrive best. Some questions to consider before booking a visit to nurseries are: is your child comfortable in a busy, social environment or would they benefit from a smaller cohort of children? Does your child benefit from structure or do they prefer to play more freely and discover learning situations for themselves? Each nursery will be different, depending on their ethos and outlook.
Additionally, having well qualified and caring staff who are invested taking care of children during the day and providing a nurturing environment for them to grow, is fundamental when choosing a day nursery. Montessori nurseries are particularly well-known for offering a nurturing and stimulating environment for children to learn, grow, play and socialise.

Selecting the nursery to suit your child will depend on your impressions of the environment and interactions with nursery teachers. In this instance, it’s important to trust your intuition and weigh up the advantages and disadvantages of different nurseries before choosing the right day care nursery for your child.
