I am considering leaving my DD in her current private nursery until she starts school rather than send her to one of the local school nurseries for 2.5 hours a day. The only thing that has occurred to me is that will she find settling into school more difficult? Not sure if its the case every where but round here you can get school nursery places fairly easily but not necessarily reception places at your chosen school. DD has been at her nursery since she was 9 months and is very happy so don't want to move her now and then perhaps again when she starts school. Or am I worrying too much and she will adapt fairly quickly whatever we do?
That's what we are doing. DS1 will start school in September without having been to the school nursery. School "induction" meeting sort-of assumed everyone's been to the nursery - "Most of our children would know where the toilets are" etc etc but we are not fazed. He's happy at his nursery and I'm not moving him. Besides what sort of job lets you do 2.5 hours childcare a day? Not mine, and mine is already as flexible as I think humanly possible.
