There has been much debate recently in the press and on social media about the cost of childcare
We put Mini M in nursery 4 days a week with Mr M and I alternating taking a Monday off
Our fees are more than our rent!
It is also a reason why we won’t have another child any time soon, the cost of having 2 little ones in nursery would cripple us
There are however positives to Mini M going to nursery
He loves it for a start
His social skills have come on leaps and bounds and he is very vocal
He has to learn to share with other children. Nursery report that he has a friend that he spends a lot of time with and the 2 of them hold an end of a snake each and walk up and down nursery together (how cute!)
He learns from coping the older children as well
He loves Old MacDonald at the moment and will constantly sing “E, I, E, I, O”
We bought him some soft farm animals to help him relate which animals make which sound
At nursery he has worked with his keyworker to develop a farm animal collage
Yes nursery costs a fortune but I am really glad and proud of how much he is learning
Does your little one go to nursery?
