Settling in

To ensure your child’s happiness and well being on his or her first day, we encourage you to spend time settling them into the setting, this process can be as long or short as you wish, depending on your child’s individual needs.

In this time you and your child can establish a relationship with your child’s key person, whereby you will spend time completing your child’s All About Me booklet. During this time we will establish your child’s starting points of development, discuss your family culture and background, including languages spoken at home. We will share with you information relating to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is our guidance in completing your child’s learning journey.

On this visit you must return your child’s registration forms if you haven’t already done so along with the registration fee. (if applicable).

We value you as parents of the children we care for, and understand that leaving your child with us may be a major step to you and your family;  therefore  feel free to phone during the day to speak with a member of staff to find out how your child has settled.
