Starting Nursery

Starting Nursery

We support every child when they start with us to ensure a happy, smooth and memorable transition into nursery.

To ensure your first few months in nursery are as personal and seamless as possible. We work with you to build positive relationships to ensure we provide exceptional, dedicated childcare to your child.

We strive to ensure that every child’s start at nursery is as calm and enjoyable as possible. From the beginning your child’s key person will work together in partnership with you so that the settling process is positive from the start.

At the first settling in session, we invite you to stay with your child so that you both can familiarise yourselves with the nursery environment and the rooms.

The key person who will care for your child, will start to develop a relationship with your child, whilst still having your familiar face nearby. As your child becomes more comfortable in the nursery, you will be able to leave your child for short periods at a time to build their confidence ready for a full session at nursery.

During your settling in visits, we will complete an all about me document to 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 Person will tailor activities to suit your child’s interests. We are happy for you and your child to take as long as you need in the settling in process.

All of our settling in sessions are free of charge.
