Starting nursery can be a daunting prospect for a young child and their parents / carers.
It is really important to us to build relationships with the whole family: parents, carers and children.
We offer settling in sessions for each child which enables them to experience the nursery setting, to meet staff and make new friends. You and your child will be invited to attend a settling in session where you will meet your child's Key Worker, explore activities and build new relationships. Your child will be encouraged to explore activities with their Key Worker, whilst you observe and children may choose to seek reassurance and encouragement from you as and when they need to.
Each child is different and requires a unique settling in experience. Some children only need 1 settling in session before feeling confident to begin their nursery sessions, whilst others may need a few more. We aim to provide a settling in experience that is tailored to the needs of your child. This will be discussed with you, your child's Key Worker and the nursery supervisor.
