How upsetting is it for a 2 or 3 year old to move nursery?

My 2.5 year old has been at the same nursery since I went back to work at 9 months. She's really happy there and we are really happy with her care.

We are looking at moving to a new area (as we can't afford a big enough place where we live) which means she'll have to move nurseries.

How upsetting is it for toddler to move nurseries? I am really worried about the impact on her. We can't wait until she starts school for financial reasons.

Toddlers are adaptable and she will be fine.

Not sure how it relates tonyou looking forward to school though!

Thanks NSEA. What I meant was we can't delay until school starts to move to a new home for financial reasons, we have to move ASAP.

My DD moved nurseries when she was 3 as we moved house. She was slightly unsettled as you'd expect but fine after 3/4 weeks.

As a nursery teacher I can say that most children will be fine with this, after a month or two of re-settling perhaps. But it really depends on your child and how they are generally with new people and change.

I recently moved mine aged 2.5. He adapted incredibly well, his new nursery is a lot nicer though which helps! We did settling in over a week then he was happy to do full days.
