The benefits of early education
Research shows that children who attend nursery from a young age do better when they start school and throughout their whole education.
At nursery your child can:
- Develop self-confidence
- Improve their speaking, listening and language skills
- Become more excited about learning, meeting new people and mixing with other children
- Get ready for school
