I thought, as a full-time working mother, that I would feel guilty about putting my son in childcare. You're never far from an article about work/home balance, mothers and guilt. Granted, with the help of Daddy's shifts and two 'Granny days', my son isn't in full time, but still - leaving him with strangers! It is true that in the first couple of days, and more recently when he went through a clingy patch, I wondered if he understood why Mummy left him in this strange place and felt a pang or two. But those pangs are short lived and I leave for work guilt free, and that's down to you and your staff. I can't feel guilty about leaving my son in a place where he is welcomed every day with smiles and hugs; where he eats a range of healthy food, trying new things all the time; where he is encouraged to explore and learn and play; where he can interact with children of his own age (which he wouldn't get otherwise) making friends and learning social skills. Your setting is a bright, welcoming, friendly and happy place, and my son loves it there. I'd feel guilty for NOT taking him!
So thank you Nursery, for helping to make my days guilt free (at least about this!) and for helping my son develop into a lively, chatty, curious little boy.

First week of our son at nursery and just have to say how impressed I am with the menu - varied healthy options (and creative) for breakfast, lunch and tea! I think our litte boy will be eating better at nursery than at home.
