We place a high level of importance on the settling in process for our new children and families
We understand that parents need a nursery that can meet with their individual circumstances
We offer flexible and comprehensive childcare to best suit the needs of your family including an hourly or day rate and term time only, or all year round contracts. Supported by our Team, the use of a Key Person approach within the setting allows us to build positive and rewarding attachments with the children in our care.
The Key Person is responsible for a small group of children
Settling in visits are provided free of charge at a time to suit you and your child. During this time you and your child will get to know their Key Person. They will complete an All About Me form with you and find out information such as your preferred routines, what your child likes to do and what comforts them.
The practitioners remind the child that they are kept in mind by their parents and siblings by talking about home with them.
Your child’s Key Person will ideally greet you at the start of the day, and support both you and your child as you say goodbye. The Key Person will also be present at the end of the day, to discuss your child’s day and provide a link between home and the setting.
Each Key Person has a significant other, who covers for sickness, holidays and shorter shift patterns. The significant other provides a back up to keep disruption to a minimum.
