The first few days at a new nursery can be very daunting for both the child as well as the parent. We understand that each child is very different and will take different lengths of time to settle into their new environment. This is why our settling-in policies are tailored specifically to meet the needs of not only the child but also the parents.

During this settling-in period we also take the opportunity to discuss your child's daily routine at home, their likes and dislikes, understand and manage your expectations and explain our 'partnership with parents' policy. You will also have the opportunity to discuss or ask questions regarding our nursery policies and procedures in detail. All this exchange of information will help us create a home-away-home environment.

We do not want you to be worrying about how your child is getting on at the nursery whilst you are at work or getting on with daily routines. You can rest assured that our qualified and experienced team of staff will soon be engaging the children's attention to having lots of fun.

And before you know it, your child will be happily waving 'bye-bye' to you without any tears and rushing off to play with his/her new friends.

My child has been showing remarkable progress in cognitive abilities; we attribute this partly to the input from the nursery.

"We can see good progress in Riana within this period. She loves going to the nursery and she has become so friendly with others since attending the nursery.

Riana can sing, dance and she is good at numbers and letters. She talks about good and bad habits which she has learnt from school, like not fighting with other children, sharing things, listening ettc. Riana also tells her own stories using her own imagination. We are happy with her progress.

Thank you all."
