If you know what to look for, it isn’t difficult to find a progressive day care centre, and there can be quite a dramatic difference between good and bad, so it is important to know what to look for when browsing websites and visiting potential venues, with a view to sending your child for a few days a week.
Kids learn by doing things, and a toddler should not really be taught anything, rather he should be allowed to explore in a controlled environment, and finding a nursery in Northwich that fits the bill isn’t an issue with an online search. Lots of music, movement and delicate activities, are the order of the day for 2-4 year olds, and when browsing their daily schedule, you should see things like:
- Story Time
- Using Clay
- Dancing and movement
- Building blocks
All or most of the above activities would be inserted into a weekly schedule, with a daily nap time right after lunch.
Safe and Secure
The design should incorporate curved edges and soft materials, and with controlled access and CCTV, the centre is a safe place to leave your child.
If the parents are generally happy with the day care their children receive, that means the kids are enjoying it, and after a chat with the principal, you can sit and observe as the carers guide the children though a specific challenge or game.
Young children thrive in the right environment, and by looking for the above aspects, you should be able to make an informed decision on where to send your child in the coming weeks.
