Day care, Nurseries and pre-schools in Witney and around
18 March 2023
One of the most intimidating things when my maternity leave was coming to a close was to find a nursery for Ay. I wished someone had told me to start the process early as the ones we really liked had a long waiting list, which meant I couldn’t put him into our first choice. It all worked out ok in the end but my suggestion to all new parents would be start looking around as early as you can.
- First and foremost, make a list of all the nurseries in your area. You dont have to worry about this because I have done it already for you.
- Short list the ones you like or suit your needs the most (such as commute, working hours, daily costs etc). Check the nursery is registered with Ofsted and see the most recent Ofsted report. Also ask your friends for recommendations.
- Visit a few to find the setting that you are most comfortable with. Ask them loads of questions in person about the childcare they provide. HERE is a good checklist of what to ask.
- Look at the other children in the nursery and see if they appear to be happy and well occupied? I always took Ay with me to see how he reacts to the environment. You will get a vibe for the place!
