I put Kory’s name down at a nursery near our house when he was just a couple of months old. Today I recieved a phone call from the manager of the nursery, she rang to tell me that Kory has been given a place and that he could start this September! Also that she would like to do a home visit some time soon just to make it all official.
I am so pleased that he has been given a place at our chosen nursery! It’s a really good nursery too, all of the staff there are really nice, Kory will already know some of the children that go there and the nursery itself is literally at the bottom of our street.
The nursery manager has arranged to do a home visit in the next few weeks. When she comes to visit, she’s coming to see how Kory is getting on and to just discuss a few things with us. We’ve also been invited to an opening morning in July where we can visit the nursery to show Kory around, to see his classroom and for us to meet the teachers. I’ve already been taking Kory to a play group session in which one of the teachers from the nursery hosts so that’s good, at least he will be familiar with someone there once he does start.
I can’t believe that my baby will be starting nursery in just a matter of weeks!
As excited as I am for him, I have to admit, I am a little nervous about Kory starting nursery. There’s a few things i’m worried about actually… Will he be okay? Will he be upset the first time I drop him off? Is he even ready? Will he make friends? Will he behave? Kory isn’t exactly the biggest child, also he will be one of the youngest in his class as he only turns 2 a matter of weeks before starting nursery, so some of the children will have developmental advantage too. I hope this doesn’t affect him. I’m sure he will be okay and I know i’m probably being silly worrying so much about it all but I can’t help it. Kory has been by my side from being born and sending him off to nursery is a big deal for us both.
Where has my tiny 4lb 7oz baby gone and who is this little boy before me who will be wearing his own little uniform with his own little bag! Kory when did you get so grown up?! It’s crazy to think that I once had a newborn and later this year I will have a kid who goes to nursery!
