Settling In

On confirmation of your place, we will arrange for you to attend one of our welcome mornings – these are held in the July before your child starts in the September.

On the welcome morning, you will meet the Headteacher, nursery staff and your child will have a chance to experience the Nursery and become familiar with the space.

Home Visits also take place in September. A member of the nursery team will visit you and your child at your home. This is a chance for us to meet you and your child in your home, which will support your child in settling into our nursery. It also allows your child to get to know the nursery staff in your home environment.

We want children to feel stimulated, safe and happy in the nursery and to feel really secure and comfortable with all staff. It is a big step for children to begin a new nursery. It can take time for children to get used to new faces, surroundings and routines.
