Nursery School Guildford: Fitzsimmons place Nursery. Mistakes we do while selecting a Nursery or Day Care. 12 February 2016 Posted by: Fitzsimmons Choosing the right nursery school or day care centre is perhaps the one of the most important decision a parent makes at this early stage of parenthood. Getting it right makes for a great experience for both toddler and parent – getting it wrong causes stress, anxiety and worry. Here at Fitzsimmons Place Nursery we see some of the common mistakes parents make. Firstly our most important piece of advice – take your time. So many parents rush the process; they have a quick look at two or three nurseries and then make decisions without looking at either the full or big picture. Secondly, location, location, location – the nearest nursery is not always the best nursery for your child. Thirdly don’t rely on reputation or the snazziness of the website or social media – take the time to visit and understand for yourself what each nursery on your shortlist can offer.

Get it right and its happy days for your child and ease of mind for you the parent. Fitzsimmons Place Nursery, 32 Portsmouth Road, Guildford, Surrey GU2 4DJ. Pre-School Nutrition And Education. 07 April 2016 Posted by: Fitzsimmons In a recent study, 70% of obese children grow up to have adult obese issues and the process of educating people to make healthy eating choices starts at a very early age and at Fitzsimmons Place Nursery we take very special care in producing menu’s that are healthy, nutritious as well as being delicious.

Today it is estimated 1 in 5 children of a pre-school age are already obese. As childcare specialists / educators we have the opportunity and the responsibility to work with families to help preschoolers learn about food and to separate good foods from not so good foods. In this process it is important to also educate that generally all foods are ok in moderation and excessive eating of any foods is not good for the body or mind. Impact Of Fun Classroom Learning On A Child's Brain - 15 April 2016 Posted by: Fitzsimmons Teachers at all levels understand that humour is inherently social and the contagious nature of humour naturally builds a sense of social community by lowering defences and bringing individuals together. By making the classroom a ‘fun’ place, children are receptive to learning quicker, enjoying their learning time more and also find it easier to communicate with their classroom buddies in a much better way.

Essentially humour and fun activate our sense of wonder, which is where learning begins so it seems rather logical that humour and fun enhance retention and improves learning. A recent study showed that having fun with appropriate humour resulted in increased retention and improved social interaction to a higher level. The children’s TV show Sesame Street has harnessed the power of humor for decades. Factors to consider when choosing the best nursery school for your child | Fitzsimmons Place Nursery.

Here are some key points when choosing a nursery schools for your child; Look at the big picture – what is the ethos & culture of the nursery and the environment in which your child will spend a considerable time, and does this marry with your own family values.

What can you expect when sending your child to a nursery school? 05 January 2016 Posted by: Fitzsimmons As a parent the key question to be answered when looking at a nursery school for your child, is what do you want and or expect from the school.

As they grow we allow them to do more and more by themselves, learning by doing, with able staff guiding them as they begin their journey of exploration. How important is a nursery school in a child’s development? A good Nursery, well selected, can act as a springboard for any child’s development and play a significant role in how and at what pace the child develops. The first key aspect is how a nursery supports and promotes social and emotional development of the child whilst working in partnership with the parents and carers to provide positive feedback and modelling appropriate behaviour.

The nursery environment will encourage and promote language skills which play an important role towards helping the child learn to communicate and interact with other children and adults. These skills are critical for future learning and school readiness. During their time at nursery, the child will learn how to take care of themselves, have their curiosity nurtured and become sensitive to the world that surrounds them.
