Before your child starts you will be invited to come and spend an hour or so ‘settling in’. This is an ideal opportunity for us to observe your child at play and for you to see the staff and children in action too. A second settling in session is then arranged where you are able to leave your child once they are happy and playing and come back in an hour or so. Parents often find these sessions helpful and it makes the separation process a bit easier, for parents just as much as the children! These sessions are free of charge.
In addition to the registration form, you will be given an ‘All about me’ profile to complete where you will have the opportunity to tell us about anything special to your child. For example, what they like to play with and any special words they might use. This helps us to get to know your child before they start. The more we know, the better staff can build on their interests to help with their learning.
