Starting Nursery

Once you have decided to enrol your child at one of our nurseries we will make arrangements for your Settle Sessions. Each child and family will have a bespoke package made for them, to ensure a happy, smooth and memorable transition into nursery.

We strive to build positive relationships with all our parents and provide exceptional, dedicated childcare.

Your child’s key person will work together in partnership with you in order to build positive relationships from the start.

At the initial settling in session, we invite you to stay with your child so that they can familiarise themselves with the room they will be in and they key workers who will care for them, whilst still having a familiar face nearby. At this session we will discuss the “All about me” you will have completed at home. This first session is an information sharing session so be prepared with lots of questions!

As your child becomes more comfortable in the nursery, you will be able to leave your child for periods of up to 2 hours to build their confidence ready for a full session at nursery. We book two sessions with you initially but if you require more, then just speak to your child’s key person. We recognize each family as individuals and will work with you around what is the best for you and your child.

During your settling in visits, we will ensure that we understand your child’s current routine, how your child likes to be comforted, if they have a special comforter, a favourite story or activity they like to do. Throughout your child’s time at nursery, their Key Worker will tailor activities to suit your child’s interests.

If you are attending as a fully funded child 2,3 or 4 year old your settle time will be organized at the start of your first term. You are welcome to arrange individual pick up times to suit your child if the full 3 hour session is initially too much.
