Once your child has been allocated a place in the nursery you should contact the school to arrange a visit and a starting date.
When children start nursery it is important that they are given time to settle into their new environment. A parent, relative or friend should stay until they are familiar with their new surroundings. Initially, the adult will leave the child for a short time only, but remain close at hand. As the child settles, the time will be extended until they can stay for the whole session. Remember that you are most welcome to stay with your child at any time.
Each child is an individual and some take longer than others to settle. The settling in procedure is very important and ensures that your child is happy and secure in the nursery class.
