My child is at a nursery for two fulldays a week which suits me perfectly now, and in terms of childcare would be ideal until he starts school, maybe with one more day, so 3 fulldays there and two with me at home. I don't want to have him doing half-days all week - it would make our work lives really difficult. I'm happy with what the 4 year olds look to be doing at nursery. But should he be starting sessions at a school-attached nursery before he goes to school? will he need that to help settle in? Please tell me your experiences/opinions; thanks.
