A rich experience
For many Children nursery represents the child’s first experience of coping independently away from home and family, and for some it may involve adapting to a different culture and language. At Firm Foundations we recognise the importance of our role in supporting children and families as they make the transition from home to Nursery. We aim to provide a rich foundation for future learning and prepare the children for the beginning of their formal education.
What our parents sayNatalia said : 'I am happy to go to work because she smiles at me when I drop her at nursery. I know she is in good hands.'
Georges mum says ‘I enjoy reading through his learning journey. It gives me an idea of what he has been up to. The photos are very useful.’
Johns mum commented: 'I wish I had brought him here a long time ago. When I took him to his previous nursery, he cried every day when I dropped him. This made me feel really guilty. Since he has been coming to Firm Foundations he has never cried when I drop him.'
