The Benefits of Nursery for Children

Taking your child to a nursery school is the first step towards educating your child in the foundations of personal development. Your child will also be learning a lot about their own independence, how to communicate with others, and also develop their skills in time for entering reception and/or primary school.


In this guide from a nursery school in Richmond, we explore the benefits that nurseries bring to children and how they can shape their futures.


Greater socialisation skills

The biggest thing toddlers will get to appreciate is the fact they get to make friends, play games with a range of different people and they get that chance to learn how to effectively communicate. Over time they’ll be able to speak a lot more words when heading to a nursery for the day or the afternoon. It gives them the chance to be free in their thoughts, feel more inquisitive and keen to push themselves out of their comfort zone.


Your child gets to try a range of activities

Ways for your child to learn will come more naturally in a range of activities that are suited to their own abilities. Over time your child will be able to develop their understanding of these activities and get to develop their new skills casually and without making it harder on them too. These games and activities can show you what your child is interested in and how they can develop their skills further in these areas.


Children are learning to not be entirely dependent on their parents

Your child will be in the nursery for several hours a day, and so your child needs to understand that they won’t be seeing you for a long time. Nursery is the perfect environment for them to develop an understanding of managing their own skills without looking to their parents all day, everyday.
