Its been just over six weeks since I was sat drinking my Costa Coffee typing this post about Millie's morning at Nursery School .
It seems so long ago now, it seems to have slotted right into our routine and its as if it has always been this way!
Millie started off on just 1 session a week, but I soon realised that she would much prefer to go for 2! So she now does 2 sessions a week, and I am totally lost without her on those 2 days.
She has settled in so well, she had a little wobble in the middle and cried when I left her a couple of times, but she has gone back to her normal happy self. A couple of weeks ago she made the staff laugh when she walked in the door, and no sooner had she taken her coat off she was asking for a drink, she sat herself down at a table watching everyone else play whilst she sipped her beaker of water! She is so cheeky!
She has come home almost every session with something that she has made. These are just a few of the things...
They seem to do so much with the children, I am being updated on what she has been getting up to in the form of a contact book. Her teachers will often write a little note about what she has enjoyed doing that day or what funny things she has said! I really like that communication is so good, as it puts my mind at rest. She is in safe hands and I could not be happier.
She always come home full of chatter about her day, she has made some little friends, and formed closer bonds with some children that she already knew. She often tells me what she has had for snack and then points out that she hasn't saved any for me! Cheeky! She sings songs to me that she has learnt and shows me little dances that Millie and her friends have made up!
Sending Millie to Nursery was the best decision I have made this year, I can see how happy she is surrounded by other people her age. She may have only been going for 6 weeks but I can already see big changes in Millie. The only thing I dislike is that my youngest baby is no longer home with me on those days!
