Setting In Policy
When a child is accepted by the nursery, arrangements will be made for a visit so that the child can familiarise themselves with the nursery. The nursery staff will work in partnership with parents/carers to settle the child into the nursery environment.
To ensure that all children new to the nursery feel settled and happy in the environment and that parents/carers are comfortable with regards to leaving them.
- During the first few weeks, parents/carers can stay with the child for sufficient time so that the child feels settled and the parent/carer feels comfortable about leaving her or him.
- All parents are welcome to visit the nursery at any time and spend time in their child's room. Grandparents and other close relatives who often bring and collect children are also invited to spend time in nursery.
- For the first few sessions, parents/carers may collect the child early if they so wish.
- Parents are encouraged to telephone the nursery or call into the nursery as many times as they wish to check on their child. If telephoning, please be aware that it is not always possible to answer the telephone immediately. However if you leave a message and wish us to call you back please do so.
