When looking for a nursery for your little one you’ll want to enrol them somewhere that creates a good first impression. Although nursery places can go very quickly, it’s important to think carefully about your decision to ensure that the nursery you choose is professional and well suited to your child.
Here are some top tips that you can follow.
Visit the nursery in person
When you read about a nursery online and it ticks your boxes, be sure to arrange an on-site visit too. Taking a look around will help you decide whether you like the environment and would feel comfortable with your child attending. It’s also a great opportunity to see the available facilities as well as meet the team who will be caring for your child.
Get local recommendations
If you don’t know where to start when it comes to choosing a nursery, it’s a good idea to get recommendations from local family and friends. Speaking to someone who can provide a great recommendation as well as offer honest feedback about their experience is very valuable. You can then ask as many questions as you like and gain in-depth information.
Learn more about the nursery’s expectations
All nurseries operate in a slightly different way so it’s essential that you find one that matches your needs. For example, some nurseries enforce a potty training rule that requires children of a certain age to be out of nappies by the time they start attending nursery. Find out all of these answers beforehand as this information is vital when making a final decision.
Choose a nursery that’s convenient
You must consider whether the nursery’s you are looking at are convenient for you. A good nursery should be local to your home or in a convenient location on your way to work so drop offs and pickups fit seamlessly into your daily routines. Remember, the best nursery for you should have excellent facilities but the location is just as important.
