At Millwood House Day Nursery, we see daily the advantages that nursery care has to offer children.
One of the most important aspects is building their social skills. Because the children get to mix with a variety of age groups, cultures, and abilities, they learn respect and inclusion, making them feel safe, secure, and confident within our nursery environment.
For some children, attending Millwood House Day Nursery may be the first time they have been away from their main carers, so building new relationships within the setting is vital for their emotional wellbeing. Spending time with other children helps a child to develop new skills such as communication, sharing, listening, manners, equality, and fine motor skills such as holding a pencil or modelling play dough.
All these skills help a child become independent and, as they work through the nursery from The Baby Room to The Caterpillar Room and finally to The Butterfly Room, where they become school ready. Attending Millwood House Day Nursery will also help a child with the daily routine and structure of what is expected throughout the day.
All our activities are based on learning through play, and we can turn any activity into a learning experience for a child and sometimes us too.
Working within Millwood House Day Nursery is as rewarding for us as it is for the children who attend; every day is a learning day, and we take pride in teaching these small people how to grow in every aspect of themselves.
