Billy started preschool a month after he turned 3yrs old.

We had no tears at all, he can't wait to get in there!

I don't even have time to take his coat off most days as he wants to be in first LOL

Over here there are nursery's called Kres but they only seem to catter for children doing 5 full days a week. The idea of putting your children into day care is fairly new in this area as most people have ex tended families living close by who look after the children.
This being a holiday area Turk's from other parts of Turkey have started moving here for work and so the family closeness is lost. They have realized that working parents need full time child care. They have not realized that parents who do not work would want part time child care. There answer is he can come part time but you pay full time prices as we have no part time place's.
An English mother went to a local play center just before Christmas and the owner agree if she could get a few parents interested we could have it for two hour's on a Wednesday morning for half price. This has been great. There are 8 children aged 16 months to 3 years who go. Cem has a great time and i get to chat to other mothers. We stop in the middle and have a drink and snack.

My DD goes 2 a private nursery 2 days a week from 9am till 6pm, she loves it and has learnt so much since starting when she was 13 months, she turned 2 in dec and loads of new friends, i think it helps to build up their confidence.

My youngest is still at day nursery - she's been there since she was 9 months old and she loves it. I was a bit worried about how she would like it as she was quite clingy at the time but needn't have bothered. She loves the attention lol! She is now 3.5 and starts school in September next year.

my little one edward started last september at local nursery which is attached to normal mainstream school , edward loves it !!! , though i can say he has had a few bad days when he never wanted to go in.

zoey starts in september 2007 , im dredding that because there personalitys are totally different so i think im gonna get zoey's done this and that when i go to pick her up. i dont think she is going to be as well behaved as edward at school , im not sure but that is what i feel. only time will tell. but im sure zoey will be alright. you just get worried because its fear of the unknown really.

felicity was born november so felicity does not start till september 2009 , a bit of a gap.. felicity is more like edward very laid back.

yes nursery is good , myn dont goto a private one its a normal mainstream nursery so we dont pay the fee's of a private one, which is good.. plus its the school they will all be going when they go into reception..

see you from kerry..

tyler started nursery begining of march this year only 2 and a half hours on a monday.(that's all we can afford) he's excited till we get there then cries they have rung me the last 2 weeks to collect him as he is not settling , as a qualified nursery nurse myself i know these things take time but as a mum i know my son is not happy here so i have decided to take him out. You see he was never like this when i left him at the creche just this nursery.
