    2.8 year old doesn't like nursery

    Hi everyone,

    Wondering if anyone has a similar problem. My little one is ok at pre-nursery and generally has fun but she doesn't get on with the other children. She doesn't take well to them wanting to interact with her or even sit with her! Outside of school she is very happy and very confident with family members and friends. She loves learning and is an active toddler. She is even a bit of a show off, happily singing and dancing for people in public!

    She plays nicely with kids she knows but there aren't many of them because admittedly we don't socialise her that much with other children. We are full time working parents so its quite tough to find the time. At weekends, we mainly socialise with adult friends and family. Maybe that's the problem? I know most parents probably say this but she is quite advanced for her age and can articulate how she feels. She says she is afraid of the other children and doesn't want to sit on the mat with them. Its sad to hear that she doesn't want to go to school each morning. Any advice?

    Thanks!

    she might be genuinely bored. this happened with our son (and a couple of other of his friends) albeit when they were around 4. they simply outgrew pre school and it was not simulating enough. maybe try another more active kindergarten or another form like Montessori.

    OR , just see this through for a couple of weeks. it might be a phase.

    Thanks for the advice. She seems really happy when she gets home and sings the songs and acts out the games they play in school. I think its more just a phase and some anxiety...maybe.
