I’ve been chatting to moms at the office about nursery schools and my take is that kids absorb and learn the most in this foundation phase so it pays to send them to a good nursery school that stimulates and educates as opposed to just watching them and making sure they don’t kill themselves. Have heard horror stories of kiddies watching cartoons all day at creche. I was surprised to find that the people I spoke to said they’re not spending too much on their children’s nursery school but will rather send them to a good junior school and someone even said high school (gulp!) Am I wrong in thinking that these years are the most important and that they’ll learn the most now? The feeling I got was that people were hoping to have money to send their kids to private schools later and for now let them just go to the cheapest daycare they can find as it’s not that important.
