Settling In

All children will experience some anxiety when first being left in a new environment. Some children will adapt very quickly and without too much distress, however others will take longer and will need more comfort and support. It is, therefore very important that children are given as much time as they need to settle in before being left at the nursery for a long period of time. Most of all we want your child to be happy. It often helps if a child brings with him/her a familiar object from home. An initial meeting will be arranged with your child’s key worker to discuss your child’s needs, any family matters pertinent to their care and address any concerns you may have.
