If you’re considering enrolling your child at day nursery then you’re probably interested in how they can benefit, but equally, there are many advantages for parents too. Whether you’re a first-time parent or have more than one child, it’s important to focus on your needs as well as there’s and that’s where nursery can help.
Here are some of the ways that parents can benefit from their child starting nursery.
It’s easier to go back to work
Childcare can be a big issue for parents who need to go back to work. If you have family and friends that can help that’s great, however, enrolling your child in a nursery can relieve some of the responsibility. It’s also a great way of creating a more stable routine that can fit around your work schedule. Whether you’re returning to a part-time role or full-time position, nursery is an ideal childcare solution.
You can enjoy time to yourself
Being a parent is a 24-hour job but that doesn’t mean that you don’t deserve time to yourself. Sending your little one to nursery for even just a few hours per week can give you a much-needed rest, more time to get other jobs done like household chores or even meet up with friends. This time to yourself can help you physically and mentally refuel which is essential for everyone!
You have the opportunity to meet other parents
Being at home 7 days a week provides little opportunity for your child to meet other children or for you to meet other parents. Although you won’t be at nursery with your child, during drop-offs and pickups you can get to know other local parents and build a network of friends for yourself and your little one. Before long you’ll have plenty of people who you can arrange playdates with outside of the nursery as well as coffee dates and lunches.
