Settling in

We offer a home visit to all families before their child starts in the Children’s Centre. This is so that your child can meet her or his ‘Key Person’ at home before seeing them at the nursery. It is also a chance for families to ask questions and for us to explain how we settle children.

  • We believe that ‘settling in’ is a crucial time when children start to build the relationship with their key person that will help them feel secure at nursery.
  • We have a ‘settling in’ programme for all children. This lasts at least a week but some children may need longer to get used to separating from their families. mums, dads and/or carers will need to bring their child every day when they are settling in and to organise their work or other commitments accordingly. Please do talk to staff if you have any queries about settling in.
