Preparing Your Child for Their First Day at Nursery

Sending your child to a nursery in London for the first time is an incredibly exciting time, but also incredibly daunting for both toddlers and parents! It means you will be leaving your child in the hands of others, and your child will be meeting new people and new friends for the very first time!

It’s important that you take the time and care that is necessary to appropriately prepare your child for their first day of nursery. It’s important that they go into their first day feeling happy and excited, and that they don’t see it as a negative experience.

Don’t worry if you feel emotional about sending your child to nursery. It’s totally understandable! Just make sure that your child doesn’t see you too upset, or else they’ll get upset too. Instead, try to encourage them and remind them how much fun it will be for them.

There’s plenty you can do as a parent to help your child prepare for their first day of nursery. Not sure where to start?
