Did you know the most popular birthday in the UK is September 26th, which is almost exactly 40 weeks after Christmas Day.
With Christmas just around the corner it sounds (according to the ONS Data) a few more babies could be on their way by the start of the New Year!
Find out how popular your birthday or children’s birthday is on the chart below provided by the ONS How popular is your birthday? page
No matter how popular your child’s birthday is, it makes sense given that the majority of children are born in September that childcare places will be at a premium around Spring and Summer each year. So if you are expecting a baby and believe you will go back to work it’s a really good idea to take a look at local nurseries early. This not only gives you time to think about it, but also ensures you have more time to put your baby down on the list and provides a guide as to when they will start to attend nursery.
So often we hear that parents have left choosing day care to the last minute only to find places are limited or non existent at their chosen nursery. So why not start as early as you can, get a feel for the potential nursery’s you like and act before the places run out.
At Holly Tree Childrens Nursery, Billinge we actively encourage all parents to take time and consideration to the childcare options available, we understand only too well how important it is for both your child and parents to feel comfortable.
