Nursery Settling: Session 1

on June 17, 2014

We had our first hour at nursery yesterday, where Elvis and I got to play with all the toys and other children. It took him a while to have the confidence to leave me to wander across the room, but he happily did and then started playing quite happily with some of the children.

When we came to leave he even had a cry out because he wanted to stay playing, then he wanted to go and play in the back garden with the older children. My son would be the one who cries when we leave!


The children in his room are all in the same school year that Elvis will be in, but none that much younger so they have no actual babies. I can already see how well he’s going to benefit from being there. He’s going to learn patience when the staff are prepping meals and snacks. He’s going to learn to share by being around so many other children.  Yesterday alone, I noticed him being more vocal with the children and on the walk home.

Oh, yeah, Elvis walked to and from the nursery. With a little bit of carrying across roads!

I’m still not sure that he’ll nap whilst there despite how amazing he is at sleeping in a cot, but he’ll be able to hear all the other children still playing. He’ll either adapt and learn to nap there, at least for a quick cat nap, or just nap all afternoon with me. I still have my reservations over timings, routines and getting everything done, but I feel far less nervous about him actually being at nursery.

Today is settling session two, I leave him to play as I fill in paperwork! He’ll be fine.

He’ll be fine.
