Your child will be invited to 5 settling in sessions over 5 days within the nursery.
These sessions are free and are usually booked in for the week before your child’s confirmed start date, keeping the experience fresh in your child’s mind, Your key person will fill in a report each step of the way which will help us and yourselves to track your child’s settling in and plan future support and development.
The first settling in session will be of approximately a 2 hour duration. This will allow you to meet with your child’s key person and for us to learn about your child. We will complete an “all about me” booklet with you about your child’s interests, favourite toys, and allergies etc. Toys of interest will be available for your child to play with. Whilst your child is with us they can experience activities taking place and meet their peers.
The second session will be of a longer duration and the settling in sessions will increase daily with you gradually reducing the amount of time you spend in the nursery with your child.
