Settling in Sessions
Before a child starts to attend the setting, we provide you with a daily picture schedule outlining the nurseries daily routine. We would ask that you look through this with your child and discuss the events prior to their induction. Any concerns or questions you may have, please feel free to discuss them with us. We also offer 2 individual sessions of an hour each for children to come in prior to their start date. This helps familiarise them and parents with the setting and routine.
Some children will take longer to settle than others, with this in mind we offer the following service:
After an initial meeting where registration procedures and introduction to key members of staff (including the child’s key person) takes place. Parents/carers are invited to join their child for an hour at the setting prior to their official start date (at an agreed time). This may be followed up by another date where children can be left for an hour without their parent/carer.
Where required, and prearranged with the Manager, children can be left for additional settling in sessions, prior to the child’s start date. There will be an hourly charge for this service.
