When children first start at the nursery we like to give them a lot of time and attention to ensure that they settle happily into nursery. We have a key person system. This means each child is allocated a named member of staff who takes particular care of him or her. The key person helps the child to settle into nursery and to manage saying goodbye to parents and carers. They give the child as much time as is required to settle into the new environment and routine.
Parents are requested to stay with their child until he or she can manage on their own without distress. Some children need their parents to stay for a few sessions, others need support for several weeks. It is vital for the child’s well being that the parents and staff co-operate during this time. Please speak to us if you have any specific needs and we will do our best to help.
