Some parents are shocked and depressed when their siblings may have to go to different nurseries.
The following is a list of some of the most common problems parents face when siblings have to be sent to different nurseries.
When returning to work with a young child, parents are often faced with the question of where to send their child. If this is your first child and you are looking for a nursery for the first time, you should first contact your local authority, where the friendly staff will explain the process of finding a nursery.
Once you get a general idea of the process, you will need to find a nursery of your choice and complete the “”nursery admission procedure””.
If your older child is already at a nursery but you want to apply for a new nursery for your younger child, you will have to go through the application process again, which can be a bit of a hassle.
On the “”application form”” you will be asked if you want your siblings to attend different nurseries or not.
It is a great relief and comfort to parents if siblings attend the same nursery. However, if they insist on “”the same nursery””, they may fail to get the nursery of their choice. This would mean that the child would have to be cared for at home and would be unable to return to work even if they wanted to. This is the worst-case scenario.
Before returning to work, mothers are often anxious about not being able to work and being left behind. If the nursery schools in your local authority are highly competitive, you may be left with no choice but to send your siblings to different nurseries.
The best thing is to be in an environment where you can work well and not have to worry about this.
