The Benefits of Nursery

AD/Collaborative Post.

Deciding whether or not to send your child to nursery is a big decision for many parents. For others, it’s not so much a choice as an obligation influenced by financial pressures or a demanding career. A private nursery school in Hertfordshire explore the positive benefits of day nurseries below to help put your mind at ease when it comes to sending your child to nursery.

Nursery is a fantastic way to prepare your child for school and get them used to mixing with other kids in a safe, learning environment. They will take part in the following activities, to name but a few:

  • Painting and crafting
  • Listening to stories and reading
  • Singing and dancing
  • Doing jigsaw puzzles
  • Playing in a sandpit or water table
  • Outdoor play

The above activities explore both independent and group work. Socialising with other children is essential for your child’s overall development because they will learn to respect their peers, share and play nicely. They will also become more confident, having become used to dealing with both adults and children outside of the comforts of their own home. 

Sending your kids to nursery several days a week will help them with their potty training and other general lifestyle skills. Studies have actually found that children of stay-at-home mums don’t progress as well, or as quickly, in terms of their speech and movement. This is most likely because they don’t experience different types of environment and people as they would at nursery. Nurseries also tend to have a greater number of facilities and resources. 

All nurseries are inspected regularly to ensure they are performing correctly and protecting every child in their care. With that said, you can rely on the fully trained staff to take care of your child and help them grow and develop.
