I agree that it wouldn't hurt to ask, but I think that IF they allow an child 3 or up in the nursery (assuming on PT or developmental issues) they should explain to the parent that they will be paged to pick up the child if the nursery fills up. I will have two kids nursery age when we sail (almost 3 and 17 months) and I would be pretty annoyed if there was no space due to kids who really shouldn't be there. But, on the flip side, my son is super active and will be 2 months shy of 3. I have no idea if he will be PT by then but I am a bit worried about him being bored. He is all boy and tall for his age. Should be interesting...

Since the Club age starts at 3, it really seems the nursery is for kids up to 2 years 364 days old, and isn't inclusive of actual 3 year olds.
This is in fact VERY TRUE!! I sailed with my 3yr old 1 wk after she turned 3 last nov 2011 on the Wonder (which was not full of travellers) and I COULD NOT put her in the nursery. She was "slightly" potty trained so i just put her in the clun and made I checked on her a lot! I also sailed in Apr 2012 but by then she was an OC pro. I asked the nursery when I got on board and they explained it as the post above up too 3..not past 3.

My opinion, unless you plan on homeschooling your child, it would be great to introduce her to more social environments now. Just do it for 2 hrs a day, she might surprise you! They are great and characters stop by which is also awesome
