Starting nursery can be a big adjustment in both yours and your baby’s life. Even though it is an exciting, important step, it may be an emotional time for you and your child. We can identify with this and we are here to support you through this transition.
We know that children will benefit the most when we are all working together with parents to ensure your child has a smooth transition into nursery. This is key to ensure that your baby settles and feels happy, safe and secure.
We know that babies learn to be strong and independent by having positive relationships in their lives, this gives them a warm, loving sense of belonging.
We have developed a settling in period to support your baby in the transition into starting nursery. During this time, its a great opportunity for you as parents to get to know us better and ask us any questions you may have. These sessions are usually built up over a couple of visits but the duration of the settling in period depends on how well your baby settles into the nursery.
Your baby will be given a key person which will be based on who your baby feels the happiest, settled and the most bonded with...
The key worker’s job is to observe, plan and assess your baby’s learning and development in accordance with our planning procedures and the EYFS whilst also developing a strong key worker relationship. We will work closely with you to ensure your baby meets key developmental milestones as well as offering any advice that may help you in regards to your baby being to wean, finding and following a healthy routine, advice on bottle and breast feeding and many more tips and support you may want.
During this important stage in their life, babies are exploring the world around them, using all their senses by exploring and learning new skills. It is paramount that we provide the correct environment to enable this development. Our resources and activities provide support and encourage exploratory impulses and holistic development, giving them the best start possible in their early years.
