Settling in sessions


We believe in making the transition to the nursery from home as smooth as possible. To help the children settle in we offer three settling in sessions.


The first one is an hour long and we encourage parents/carers to stay throughout this time to get to know their child’s key person. This gives them an opportunity to talk about their children’s routines and things that are important to them.


The second session is for two hours and we encourage parents/carers to stay for a while and then leave them. This enables the children to get used to their surroundings and their key person independently.


The third session is for 4 hours and we hope that they will enjoy a meal time with us and a sleep if required.

If your child needs further settles we are happy to arrange this as requested.

Parents Evenings

We facilitate a parents evening twice yearly. This enables parents/carers to meet their child’s key person in an informal way. We understand that working parents, or parents with other siblings are very busy at drop off and pick up times, therefore it is a good opportunity to have a chat regarding your child's progress.

Children's Indepence Skills

As part of our ethos we encourage the children to self-serve their food at all mealtimes. This enables the children to develop life skills.
