Day nurseries follow the early years foundation stage (EYFS), providing them with a structure of learning and care.
Your child will be in the hands of specially trained staff that are taught to provide a safe and stimulating environment for the children to learn and develop in.
There will be a wide variety of activities available for your child to learn and other skills including:
– construction blocks and dough
– imaginative play, with the sand pit, water table or playhouse
– jigsaws and puzzles
– moving and dancing to music
– painting, drawing, gluing and sticking
– simple cooking
– story time and reading
These activities and skills that they are being taught offer your child a chance to play within a group and with other children, subconsciously learning social skills and developing their confidence.
Each day nursery will have been inspected and registered by the appropriate authority; England’s nurseries: Office for Standards in Education (Ofsted), Scotland’s nurseries: HM Inspectorate of Education (HMIE), Wales’ nurseries: Estyn, Northern Ireland’s nurseries: Department for Education Northern Ireland (DENI).
Another advantage of sending your child to nursery are the strict rules in place for the parents and students to follow such as pick up times and drop off times.
Nurseries offer a stable and reliable form of childcare as it will constantly be open no matter if a carer is ill or late. Something you and your child can both benefit from.
When you are selecting a nursery for your child to visit, you can ask the nursery these questions to help you determine whether to place is right for your child.
