Before your child starts Nursery:
You and your child will be invited in for a settling in session which usually lasts for 1 hour. Following this we will invite your child for a second short session by themselves. If we feel any further settling is needed we will discuss it with you then.
Prior to starting you will be asked to complete an 'All About Me' booklet which provides us with important information about how best to support your child. We operate an open door policy in Nursery and you are able to speak to staff at any time about your child's learning and development.
When your child starts Nursery:
We will be letting you know how your child is settling in to Nursery when they first start. Your child will be allocated a Key Person within the setting but you are able to speak to any member of staff about your child's learning. You will be set-up to use our Online Learning Journal, Tapestry. We will use this to document your child's progress and their achievements. It will also be a form of communication for any events or information.
What your child will need:
Children will need a water bottle, a suitable outdoor coat, sensible shoes and a change of clothes. If your child is in nappies then you will need to provide these along with wipes and nappy bags. Please ensure everything is labelled clearly with your child's name.
