Vote For The Community Nursery Of The Year

I remember when I was looking for a nursery for Baba. It was not easy and there was so much to think about. That is why I wrote about how to find the perfect Day Nursery. It can be quite overwhelming for a first-time mum. And places are sometimes difficult to secure! I personally visited a dozen of establishments before finding the right one! It took me a long time, but there is no day I regret this choice. Baba is a happy baby and he loves going to his nursery three times a week when I am at work. Do you feel the same with your local nursery? Then, time to recognise all its hard work! Vote For The Community Nursery Of The Year today with!

It’s difficult to let it go…

After one year on maternity leave and spending pretty much 24/7 with mon bébé, it was not easy to let it go and go back to work. The first few weeks were especially difficult as I had to get used to a new routine. Plus Baba was quite small and often ill.

I was torn. Feeling guilty to leave him so young, but yet decided to carry on my career. I am not very ambitious when it’s about my work and have not intention to go up the ladder. But I still think it is important to return to work so that I can have a balance. Being a mummy at home is not for me.

So I had to find THE nursery of my dreams! Well, it doesn’t work like that. If it was the case, it would have been an establishment close to my work so that I could pop in anytime. Imagine! The decision was made that Grumpy Boyfriend would do the drop-off and the pick up as his work hours were more flexible than mine. So not quite the one, but pretty much there! We love Baba’s nursery and we are so happy we chose this one!

Why I love Baba’s nursery?

  • Every time Grumpy Boyfriend picks him up, he tells me that he is a happy bébé, laughing, playing and walking around with a smile on his face
  • The staff is so lovely and makes such a fuss about him. No need to say that Baba loves being the little favourite…
  • It’s clean and they serve him great food
  • It’s close by Grumpy Boyfriend’s work in case of any problem
  • They do so many activities with my little one
  • I love the fact that my baby is around with other children. It will definitely help him, later on, to settle down nicely at school!

Last but not least, the staff really needs a medal for looking after my little one. As nice and easy-going as Baba can be, I am fully aware that he can also sometimes be a diva! I reckon all the members of the nursery have had a taste of Baba le petit singe, running away everywhere, probably throwing his food on the floor if he decided not to have it and being a bit stubborn… And some of the staff must have had some scratches on their faces. He just loves grabbing people’s features at the moment!

So it’s time to say Merci to them! I know it’s their job, but I think all the staff is going beyond it without a doubt!

    What a great idea – to show some support for all the hard work they do in nurseries. It’s such an important job and I’m sure they don’t get half enough credit. Finding the right one gives such peace of mind!

    They grow up so fast and nursery’s are an amazing way for them to interact with other children and adults.

    Looking for a nursery was quite stress-free for us as there’s only one in the village (a fantastic one!), but I can imagine the situation is much different in the cities down south!

    I do think it’s important for a mum to get some normality back to her life and it’s good that you found a nursey that you loved x

    I love my daughter’s preschool. My son went to it before her. It is run by a family and they are all so dedicated to the children’s welfare. I can’t wait for Zach to start there next year!

    Finding a nursery where you can feel totally relaxed is not easy. So glad that you have found one and I hope they are recognised.

    It definitely makes a difference getting your child in the right nursery. Our nursery was amazing helping us with our little boy who has special needs. They helped with all the paperwork to get him into the right educational setting, he’s now in an amazing special needs primary school and we couldn’t have done it without them
