Top 10 Things to Look for When Choosing A Nursery for Your Child

  • Blog

When you watch your newborn grow into an infant and then a toddler, the first thing that strikes your mind is what is the right age to get him/her enrolled in a preschool? Their children who are fast learners, will know the colors and so from day one, while others process information slowly like might have spoken late or do not follow you much.

Thus, every child is different and there isn’t a set age to send them off to school. What Little Diamond Nursery suggests is to look for cues from your little one that ensures you that he/she is ready for the change.

But of course, the transition isn’t easy especially when you still have to select a nursery for them, which can make the whole process overwhelming for parents. Hence, sit back, take a deep breath and relax because here is the list of top 10 things to look for when choosing a nursery in Discovery Gardens:

  1. The Attitude of the Management

When you first visited a nursery, did the management there warmly welcome you? How did they receive you? Was the coordinator or head of the department easy to talk to? when finding the best Discovery Gardens daycare, a lot can be learned about the environment and how the managed has welcomed you.

At Little Diamond Nursery, you’ll always be welcomed with open arms and a warm heart which ensures a safe and healthy learning environment for your child.

  1. Is it Safe?

When your little step out of the house, as a parent your priority is to keep them safe. Hence, make sure you choose a nursery for them that doesn’t have dangerous corners and the kids are supervised 24×7.

  1. How Populated it Is?

The teacher to children ratio can tell you a lot about the nursery’s educational standard. At Little Diamond Nursery we have 1 teacher for every 8 kids, not over-populating the classrooms so that every child is paid individual attention to.

  1. Curriculum

Does the nursery follow the international standards of the curriculum? Does the curriculum include activities too that promote physical and mental development? If the nursery offers something as per your expectation, know that it is worth enrolling your child into.

  1. Qualified and Experienced Teachers

Teachers who are experienced in handling kids know and understand how every child is different and needs to be treated accordingly. Hence, they will try their best to remove the communication barrier and develop a healthy bond with the children which promotes learning.

At Little Diamond Nursery the teachers do that same which is why we count ourselves amongst the best Discovery Garden nursery schools.

  1. Affordable

Although, every parent wants to provide their kids with the best early childhood education which does not come expensive. But rather than struggling to clear fee dues every month in the name of “quality” education, look for a daycare that offers good education in a safe, healthy environment and is affordable too.

  1. How Are the Parents Involved?

Sending off your kids to a preschool does not mean you are cleared of all the responsibility. Rather, a good nursery will make sure to keep the parents updated with their children’s progress and involve them at every step of the learning.

  1. Cleanliness

When you are strict about your kids’ eating habits and surroundings, you won’t stand a chance at watching them play in an unclean and unhygienic environment. Clean premises mean healthy kids and the healthier the children are, the more they will learn.

Thus, at Little Diamond Nursery we make sure to maintain a high standard of cleanliness, keep a close eye on what is served and where the children play to avoid problems later.

  1. Are the Children Supervised?

How often do you leave your children unsupervised? Very rarely, right? Because children are naughty and can harm themselves if left unsupervised for long, you would choose a nursery that ensures to keep a close eye on them no matter what.

  1. Build a Routine

Does the nursery you looking at having a set routine for every task? Do they have fixed mealtimes? Do the kids get a specific slot dedicated for a nap? A nursery that runs on a fixed schedule helps build more disciplined kids and this is something which you should always consider.
