We believe that parents play a vital part of the settling in process. We recognise that parents are the most important people in their child’s life, and we ask during the first settling in session that along with their child’s key person they complete an `All About Me’ booklet. This gives us an insight into the child’s life at home, their likes and dislikes, and their personality, as each child is unique.
To help with the transition into nursery we begin with two settling in sessions, both of which are 1 hour long, if necessary additional settling in sessions can be offered. Our aim is to make the transition into the nursery environment as easy as possible for both child and parents. We recognise that the transition times for young children and their families can be anxious. Staff will proactively offer support for both parents and children to ensure that these difficult times are handled with sensitivity, and in partnership between the parents and the Key Person.
