September is always a fresh start in the nursery world. We’ve had the sad goodbyes with those leaving for school during the summer months; but then lots of new children start and the year begins again…
The first month is all about visits, and getting our new starters settled in. Some children seem like they’ve always been with us, and others have a little separation anxiety. This is something the nursery practitioners are used to, and it is part of our job to ensure that each child is comfortable.
Staff and children were delighted to welcome Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk to the Milnrow nursery to hear first-hand how funding shortfalls are affecting the childcare industry.
His visit follows a meeting with several providers from the Rochdale area who have raised concerns about government funding for two, three and four-year-old children.
