Induction – Starting at Nursery
The first week of Nursery will be their induction. This is an important time when we start to get to know your child, their personalities and interests and their experiences of childcare so far. We will ask you to fill in a form to help us to get to know your child.
If your child has medical needs or dietary requirement, please inform the staff before they start Nursery.
We want children to have a positive first experience at our nursery and believe that this is best achieved through working in partnership.
During the Induction stage, we will arrange with you a time that you and your child can come in for an hour for your child to familiarise themselves with the Nursery, and we will go over necessary paperwork with you.
Settling In Period
To ensure a smooth and happy transition we will have a settling period –
|Settling in process|
|Day 1||1 hour|
|Day 2||1.5 hours|
|Day 3||2 hours|
|After induction-||Full sessions if ready|
If your child is not ready for full sessions by this time we will devise a personalised timetable, this may mean someone being available to come and collect your child earlier than the end of the session – in our experience if children are settled gradually they settle much quicker and usually within 2 weeks.
