I hope everything is going well with everyone. Being a mother and student at the same time is something that is not quite easy since you need to do different things simultaneously so it is not something you can mange alone, especially for the first period of your study when everything is quite strange for you. So I will recommend that parents who intend to come to study in Sheffield university should try to search about nursery and school before coming here since there is a waiting list for children acceptance . By doing this, you can know the choices you have before coming here and reduce the stress that you can feel.
This is one website that can help you to find schools in the city you are going to study in.
I hope this can help you to find some suggestions for your child needs and help you to live in peace after you arrive.
Finally, you can know more information about this by asking previous students so they can help you from their experience.
Best wishes for all
