If you are looking to resurrect your career and introduce your toddler to the outside world at the same time, there are a few aspects to consider. Your choice of nursery is critical, and with that in mind, here are a few things to look for when choosing a day care centre.
- Secure Facility – The day care centre should have controlled access, and have both an indoor and outdoor soft play area. CCTV would cover every inch of the facility, and with a team of dedicated carers, your child can safely explore a new and exciting environment. There is a trusted nursery in Lincoln that is very affordable, and their holistic approach ensure your child will enjoy their time at the nursery.
- Experienced Carers – Typically, there would be 2 or maybe 3 experienced carers, who would oversee 4 or 5 young carers, and the centre would be managed by someone with a lot of experience. Group activities would be organised, giving all the children a range of fun based activities that would include dance, movement and storytelling.
- Communication – You should have the opportunity to talk with a carer on a daily basis, as this is important feedback for both carer and parent. If your child has any issues, you can work together to resolve the problem, and most nurseries would use a small notebook that the carer records what they did that day.
The children should be happy, and by visiting once or twice (without your child) when they are open, you can observe a few activities.
