About Us


First Day

A child who is tense or unhappy will not be able to play or learn properly, so it is important for parents and pre-school staff to work together to help the child to feel confident and secure in the group. This takes longer for some children than for others and parents should not feel worried if their child takes a while to settle. The Nursery’s policy on settling is opposite (Settling in Nursery).

In order to feel free to explore and experiment with all kinds of materials, including messy ones, it is best to send children dressed in clothes, which are easily washable or not too new. Footwear should allow children to participate fully in all physical activities, i.e. trainers. It is good for children to practice the skills, which will make them independent. Simple clothing which they can handle themselves will enable them to go to the toilet when they want to and to put on and take off their outdoor clothes without being too dependent on other people’s help. We hope that your child’s time in Nursery will be a very happy and productive one. If you have any queries or if we can be of any help, please contact the staff at any time.

We want children to feel safe and happy in the absence of their parents, to recognise other adults as a source of authority, help and friendship and to be able to share with their parents afterwards the new learning experiences enjoyed in the Nursery. We also want parents to feel informed and relaxed from the beginning. Children cannot play or learn successfully if they are anxious and unhappy. Our settling procedures aim to help parents and children to feel comfortable in the Nursery, and to ensure that children can benefit from what the group has to offer and feel confident that their parents will return at the end of the session.
