Although Erin has now been going to nursery for 2 months now, we knew where she would be going well over a year ago. I think we started to think about looking at where Erin would go to nursery just before her first birthday. Where we live there are a few different nurseries to choose from. There are more just out of town but as we don’t drive, none of these were going to be possible. We also ruled out the nursery that was closest to home and only a couple of minutes away. It would have made a lot
I honestly cannot believe that Erin has now been going to nursery for a whole month. The time has gone incredibly fast and I can imagine that it will only keep going this fast as well. As it’s been Erin’s first month I thought I’d do a ‘nursery: 1 month on’ kind of update about how she’s doing and what she has been getting up to. Erin’s settling in sessions and her first full day went really well. She wasn’t really that bothered about me leaving and was quite happy to go off holding her teacher’s hands to go off
4th January was a pretty big day for our family. This was the day that Erin had her first day at nursery. Well, I guess it wasn’t her first real day as it was only the first of two settling in sessions and I didn’t actually leave her there but to me, it felt like the first day.

Erin’s first day of nursery is coming round very fast and every time I think about it, I get super emotional.

Preparing for the first day of nursery is a massive thing for me so I have no idea what it is going to be like for Erin. I remember going to have a look around the nursery nearly a year ago now and falling in love with it.
