We understand, that both for parents and children, entering nursery for the first time can be a bewildering and difficult time.   We aim to make your child's entry into nursery as happy and smooth as possible therefore we adopt a flexible approach and have a gradual admission process which caters for the needs of each family.   As many visits as you and your child needs are offered gradually, to ensure that your child has settled in before actual admission.  

These gradual admissions sessions are also an opportunity for us to gain valuable and important information about your child; for to you get to know the staff and ask them questions and discuss any concerns that you may have.

We are happy for your child to bring a comforter whether that is a toy, blanket or dummy, etc. whilst they settle in.   And you are more than welcome to call as many times as you like during the day to see how your baby/child is.

Your child will be assigned a Key Person who is one of our caring and experienced staff.  The Key Person will help your baby or child to settle into nursery and to feel confident and safe.  She will develop a bond and offer a secure close relationship with you and your child.   When babies and children feel happy and secure in this way they are confident to explore and to try out new things.   Throughout nursery, observations of your child's interests, significant achievements and development will be recorded and kept on your child's 'Learning Journey'.  This Learning Journey contains written observations, photographs, and samples of the children's work which we encourage you to access and contribute to at any time.   We then use this information to plan experiences which support the interests, development and future learning of your child.
