What is the settling in process?

The settling in process begins with a virtual “meet the family” session, where you’ll meet your child’s key person online so that they can learn everything about you and your child – particularly the things that might enable them to settle quickly into nursery! It’s also a chance for you to get to know them ahead of starting with us.

Beyond that, you will have three settles at nursery. The first session is 1hr and you’ll attend with your child to settle them in to the nursery environment. The second is 1.5hrs and you’ll be able to leave and get a coffee in our parents’ area after settling your child in – they’ll spend the rest of their settle in the room getting to know their key person. The final settle is 2hrs over a mealtime, and you’ll leave your child for the full duration of this. Don’t worry – the children quickly get used to you saying goodbye! By this point we find that children feel settled and smoothly transition into nursery life when they start with us.
