Starting Nursery

Shortly before your child is due to start at the Nursery, we will contact you to discuss the settling-in period. Although some children are quite happy to start at nursery, most need comfort and reassurance and we recommend that a parent or other carer bring them to the nursery for short period prior to their official start so that they can get to know the staff and become comfortable with the environment.

The time your child spends at the nursery will be increased over this “settling-in” period, and your time will be decreased as your child becomes more relaxed and makes new friends. During this time you will also get to know your child’s key carer as they discuss routines, likes and dislikes and other information that will be important in tailoring your child’s programme to his or her needs.
