This is an important process and allows your child to feel safe and comfortable with both the staff and the nursery environment itself. Once your child feels settled, they can get on with the important job of playing, socialising, learning and developing.
The process can be structured to fit into yours and your child’s needs and wishes. It is important however that all parents/carers have at least visited the setting and met with the staff before starting to use the nursery. Staff will always be happy to show you around.
You may then wish to visit nursery again with your child and stay with them for a while before popping out for half an hour or so to see how they manage.
Please feel free to contact the nursery at any time during the early days to see how your child is settling in.
