We're moving from Herts to Notts at the beginning of May. This means that four year old DD will be leaving her lovely nursery, which is attached to a primary school. We've already applied for a late application reception place in Notts. I was planning on keeping her at home until September when she'll start school. But her current nursery teacher advised me to try to get her into a nursery up in Notts even though it would be for less than a term. I can see the benefit of this but I'm also worried about unsettling her. What do people think?
If she's been used to going to Nursery, then I think she will have that 'expectation' of going, so I would try to find somewhere. However, you might well struggle in May - the way 3 yr funding works, Nurseries are usually full in the Summer Term.
You needn't send her full time though - if you think it would be easier, she could go for a couple of days a week.
You are probably right. I think she needs that stimulation. Also we have a five month old and will be doing up our house as soon as we move in so I may struggle to keep her entertained all day. I'll try the nursery next to our new house but if they're full, I'll look into private ones. Thank you.
I work in a nursery and we have a little boy who is just coming for the summer term as his family have just moved house. I wasn't able to offer him much choice over which sessions he could have - he just had to have what was available.
