Settling In

Page 2 Settling InWe know that starting Nursery can be daunting for young children and families and we do all we can to make sure that your child settles happily and feels comfortable. The home visit is where we start to get to know your child. Then the first day is a one-hour visit where you and your child can start to get to know us.  This is a time for you to stay and play with your child, explore some of the activities and meet our staff.

The settling in time can be adapted as necessary and will be discussed on a daily basis. Some children may need your support for several sessions before they are ready to stay on their own.  Others will be happy for you to go.

Throughout your child’s time with us your child’s Key person will be available at the beginning and end of sessions for brief discussions.  If you would like to speak in more detail, please talk to staff about arranging a convenient time.
