Hi everyone, a quick question that some of you should know the answer to. If I put ds into a private nursery at 2.5 do you know which age group he is likely to be put into? Is it most likely age 2 to 3?
And how big the nursery is and how many rooms it has. Ds's nursery has Babies (6mo to 2 years ish), Toddlers (nearly 2 - turning 4) and Preschool (the year before school). But as the 8 preschoolers only leave in Sept to go to school, this means there's a backlog of 12 toddlers waiting to get promoted and not all can be. And this spills back to the babies - when a space arises the most mature child gets promoted. 'Big Toddlers' in their second year get to do stuff in Preschool at least once a week as a treat.
It's worked out well for ds so far, but a couple other children have left as they couldn't get into the Preschool room.
Another local nursery only have two large rooms, one for up to 2.5 or so, one up to school age. Whereas dn is at a huge nursery with about 20 rooms, but classes tend to stay together in one room from babyhood until Sept after turning 3 when they move to preschool rooms.
