Settling in your child
Partnership with parents
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.
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.
At our nurseries, you will receive a warm welcome from our team of qualified, experienced and friendly members of staff. We acknowledge the importance of providing continuity, both for the child as well as for the parents. The key worker assigned to your child plays an important role in helping provide that continuity. Furthermore, most of our staff members are multilingual, which proves to be a huge benefit when accommodating the extensive range of cultural backgrounds of the children that attend our settings.
