While choosing day care for your child, you may be wondering about the advantages for your child of attending a nursery, and will want to make the right decision for you. There are many social and developmental benefits for your child, even when quite a small amount of time is regularly spent in a day care nursery. Positive impacts of these centres on young children include:-

Developed Social Skills – An early start at a nursery, is always a good idea and allows your baby, toddler or pre-school child to learn about forming relationships with other children. Socialising and interacting are essential skills, and can help make the transformation from home to school a comfortable and happy one. Studies have shown that children who attend day care even just once or twice per week have enhanced social skills and are better prepared for mixing once at school. They will also realise things like how their actions can affect others, encouraging sensitivity to emerge.

Improves Core Skills – A reputable nursery is a highly stimulating environment, offering a structured timetable of fun and educational pursuits. Whatever the age of your pre-school child, there will be a set of activities tailored specifically to that age group. Flexibility is provided by qualified staff, experienced in giving your child the ability for optimal learning. The Early Years Foundation Stage, is implemented in nurseries, and is a framework introduced by the government to ensure that certain learning and development standards are met. It has been proved that a child’s earliest years are significant and influence later development. Core skills are improved when children engage in a variety of tasks such as painting, reading, singing, listening and drawing.

School Preparation – By introducing your child into the nursery environment you will be giving them a head start, and making sure that the concept of school is not a shock. By the time school life approaches, they will be used to a basic routine. It is exciting to see your child making friends and having new and fun experiences. Not only that but you will get a few hours to relax, meet friends or run errands, you may even be entitled to some help with nursery fees.

When choosing the perfect nursery or day care centre for your baby, toddler or pre-school child, you may be wondering about the best way to ensure you pick the right one. As you might suspect, not all nurseries operate to the same standard or give the same level of care, but there are always clues to look out for. Here is a list complied from several reliable sources including The Independent, with a few hints and tips to assist your search:-

Word of Mouth – Try and talk to parents of children who are already attending the nursery, to see if their child is happy there and if the parents are satisfied with the way the day care centre is run.

Visit – Arrange to visit the nursery, it is a good sign if the nursery has an open door policy to parents and welcomes you to look around. Fun and educational activities should be available, including painting, drawing, glueing, playhouse, water and sand play, story-time, construction, jigsaws, puzzles, singing, moving around, dancing, simple cookery and some computer work.

Building – Your first impressions are important, is the building clean, tidy and well organised, with clear labelling on drawers etc. Is there a good selection of toys and resources in good condition. Are there specific areas such as the science corner, the the construction corner and the book corner and is the children’s artwork displayed on the walls. Does it look like a safe environment and what security measures are employed, CCTV? Restricted access? Are sinks and toilets clean and not smelly? There should be adequate provision for outdoor play in secure surroundings, with age appropriate toys.

Children – How do the children seem? In a good nursery, there is usually a happy and busy hum, there ought to be a balance between concentration and stimulation without over excitement. Are the children encouraged to be confident and express themselves or make decisions and can you see evidence of skilful adult guidance in learning through play.

Babies – Is there a dedicated area for babies, and does it seem comfortable, cheerful, clean and safe. Go by your gut instincts when choosing your child’s nursery, if you don’t feel relaxed and contented, neither will your child.

Staff – It is crucial that the staff are not only qualified, but enjoy working with children and show an interest in them. Watch how they relate to the children and note whether or not they are happy to work with you and report to you if needed at the end of the day. Do staff undergo ongoing training to keep their skills up to date.

A Happy & Fun Time for your Child in a Safe, Caring Environment

A Safe & Fun Day Care Environment for Babies, Toddlers & Pre-School Children, South Shields, Tyne & Wear

Once upon a time, childhood was filled with endless days spent playing outside, enjoying social interaction, using imagination and exploring the body’s range of movement. Having fun in other words! Children were more active and had the opportunity to sample a vast amount of experiences, which in turn promoted physical and psychological development. Electrical toys and games were extremely limited, as was TV, so children amused themselves with a toy car, a doll or a book. Even an old cardboard box presented a world of potential entertainment. It is through the incredibly important process of play, that a child learns to integrate different experiences into their growing minds, emotions, bodies and social skills.
These days, play is a lot more sophisticated for many children with traditional toys being replaced by computer games which are believed to have both negative and positive implications. Negative aspects of these sedentary games include lack of exercise which can hinder normal physical development perhaps leading to bad posture and obesity. Another main objection to video games is the content, thought to blur the lines between fantasy and reality, particularly if there is any violence involved. Positive factors indicate that computer games may assist your child to progress with skills like problem solving, fast decision making and multi-tasking. A child’s memory, concentration and perseverance are also considered by some experts to benefit from this activity.
It is generally accepted that a child’s needs are met to a great extent by a significant amount of hands on learning. Play provides a way for children to integrate new experiences into their rapidly developing minds, bodies, emotions and social skills.
