Nursery + routines

My daughter (nearly 10 months old) is starting nursery in a couple of weeks and I’m worried about the impact of this on her routine. She usually has 2 naps a day (60-90 mins each) at around 9.30 and 2. The nursery have said they will stick to our routine, but I don’t know if, in practice, they will when there are other babies to look after on different schedules. What is everyone’s experience with this? Thanks!

This has also crossed my mind as I understood they all slept at the same time and made sense with noise level. I really like her natural cycle and we’ve moved our schedules to suit those sleep needs. Sorry I can’t make offer any advice, but you aren’t alone in your concerns. The group will have great advice as always :)

I found with my first he had a different routine at nursery. At home he'd revert back to his 'usual' one. This included milk too - he refused milk there but had it at home. My second starts in March so trying not to stress too much x

@Sara thanks - good to know! She’s starting on 2 days a week so I’m not too fussed about it then, but when she goes up to more days I wonder about the impact on her routine on the days she’s at home too. I’ve heard other people say that about milk too - very interesting!

Working in nursery myself, they will stick to the routine. Please be understanding if you lo doesn’t nap properly for the first few weeks, it takes a bit of adjusting too. But generally they do try there best to stick to the routine, after a few days most nursery staff know off the back of their hand. It’s super scary as a parent but I’m sure everything will be fine xx
