Child Care

Settling Your Child

A settling in period is reassuring to both parents and child. We want you and your child to feel happy and confident with the new situation.

Before your child starts nursery we encourage you to make regular visits to the nursery. As your child becomes familiar with the nursery, staff and other children it would benefit your child if you left them for short periods of time about 10 – 15 minutes building up to one hour maximum. You will then be offered 2 sessions as settling in time.

After your child’s starting date you may stay with your child if you think they need more time to settle but you will be charged the normal fee.

If you have left your child upset you are more than welcome to contact us and we will be happy to reassure you. If your child has a favourite toy/comforter please bring it to nursery marked with your child’s name.

The staff are more than happy to answer any of your questions or discuss any special individual needs or worries you may have.
