Transitional and Settling In Period
To help your child feel less anxious about being left in the nursery, we will arrange a 'settling-in period' with you a week before your child's actual first day. This could be for a couple of hours, half a day, or a few short visits over a week, depending on the needs of your child. This time is generally spent with the parent and child spending quality time at the setting, meeting the key person and sharing relevant information with them so they can prepare on how to look after your child best. This experience prepares you for the first occasion you leave your child at the nursery, ensuring a less anxious time for you both!
