Sign a contract
To secure your child's place you are required to sign a Childcare Contract. Places can be secured up to 1 year in advance. It is a very popular nursery and places are limited, so we encourage parents to plan well ahead of time.
All new children entering the nursery for the first time are carefully supported in their transition into the nursery. Each child's emotional well-being is of paramount importance.
Home visits are arranged for all new children joining the nursery.
3 Induction Visits
The support is facilitated through a combination of home visits, induction vists and the use of a key person system.
We arrange home visits to discuss with parents their child's care and development to ensure we have the essental information prior to the first day of care.
Each new child entering the nursery will have three free induction sessions to ease the transition into full-time care.
All parents have two opportunities each year to discuss in detail their child's progress and be involved in the planning for their 'next steps'.
Parents evening appointments occur twice a year.
The next parents Evening is Thursday 30 November 2023.
A key worker system operates and a practitioner takes prime responsibility for each child's care and learning. A child's key person is also a vital link in the communication between nursery and parents.
A Learning Journal is compiled for all children. The Journal is a record of observations and other evidence of a child's care and development. Journals are available to parents at all times.
