When it comes to the question of Pre-School or School Nursery Class, families are looking for one thing:
The best start for their child’s educational journey
At Muddy Boots, we know that making that decision, between either starting or staying at a private day nursery or moving to a school nursery is a really difficult one, one that leaves parents feeling confused, worried and usually a little stressed.
So we have put together a little guide, with answers to the most commonly asked questions at Muddy Boots Nursery, as well as our little series of blogs!
In this post we are answering question 2:
Will my child be with their friends when they start school?
This is a very natural question & concern for many parents. To put your mind at ease, there is almost always a group going together to each local school from their day nursery.
Whichever setting you choose, please be reassured that children are naturally curious and friendly, especially at a young age, and the majority have no problem making new friends, whether that be at a pre-school or in a Reception Class.
Here at Muddy Boots, we have a few tools we use to ease the transition. To show which children will be going to which school, we display a ‘getting ready for School’ board within the Pre-School room, and also ask for parents to display their phone numbers so that they can get in touch to arrange play dates for their children, ahead of starting school together.
The Teacher in Pre-School also ensures that Phonics and Maths groups are based on each school so children start to make friends with those going to the same school.
