We look forward to welcoming you and your child at their settling in sessions, which happen before their official start date.
We will discuss your child’s specific needs and, if appropriate, you will be able to leave your child in the nursery environment for a short period. We will also agree a starting date and confirm your chosen sessions for your child.
You will have the opportunity to ask any questions as we are always here to listen to our parents and make the process of starting at our Nursery smooth and enjoyable for everyone involved.
Working as a Team
We recognise and understand the potential anxieties of separation and change in the early years for parents and children. Letting go can sometimes be a difficult experience for both parent and child, but it is an important step in a child’s development, and we are here to make the process as painless as possible.
Some children can be excited about starting nursery and feel ready for meeting new friends, playing with new toys, encountering new learning experiences and enjoying all that nursery has to offer right from day one. For others, the initial transition can prove more emotional and present some hurdles.
Settling in can be a gradual process and we will take every care to ensure your child makes the best possible start to their school journey. Each child is an individual; some children cope easily with full day sessions and split days while others find half days and/or consecutive sessions easier. We will take things a step at a time, carefully monitoring his or her progress and discussing this with you.
Once your child gets used to coming to nursery and seeing familiar, welcoming faces and stimulating and engaging activities to get involved with, they will be running through the door!
