Private Nurseries improve children's social behaviour

According to recent research children in maintained settings had “significantly worse scores on the pro-social behaviour scale than those in private setting”.  This research was carried out by the National Institute of Economic & Social Research (based on findings from a sample of 7,939 children from the Millenium Cohort Study (MCS) which analysed 2005/06 Foundation Stage Profile (FSP) assessment scores and 2006/08 Ofsted inespection result.

It is extremely positive to have this evidence and shows what a positive impact having your child at nursery actually as on the child. The research also identified that in  naming vocabulary tests “it looks like children in maintained settings, nursery school and classes do better”.

Even more reason to send your child to ABC Nursery – tell your friends!!!
