None of our children move rooms before they are ready – and this decision involves lots of conversations between parents, staff, and the children themselves. The transition itself is slow and involves lots of play experiences in their new room where the children familiarise themselves with their new environment, staff team and begin to form new friendships.
We operate Via 5 Rooms
The transition between rooms is one of the most exciting parts of nursery life, even though we know it can be a little scary.
We want the very best for our children. Our promise to all Parents/Carers is to provide a happy, caring, stimulating, and secure environment which will encourage the children to develop and learn as they play.
Nobody knows their child better than you so we are keen for you to help us understand your child’s individual needs. We will begin by inviting you in to complete a full show around of the nursery with one of our senior team. This will be followed up with a one hour visit where you and your child will spend time completing a care plan with a member of staff.
We deliver a staggered approach to settling your child in, initially inviting them to the Nursery to complete a two hour visit. From here, we can book in your contracted sessions. For any child requiring a little more support, additional visits can be planned to help ease the transition into nursery.
When you bring your child into nursery his/her Special Carer and the team will be on hand to greet you with a warm welcome.
They will be keen to know how your child has been at home and will be ready to give extra cuddles if needed. This procedure is invaluable to both you and your child, as well as to us, and ensures that you have peace of mind, knowing that your child feels happy, safe and secure before you leave.
Throughout the day you are more than welcome to phone to check on how your little one has been; your call will be transferred through to your child’s nursery room and a member of staff will be able to speak to you personally about your child’s day. If your child has a dummy or special comforter they are welcome to bring it into nursery.
When you collect your child from nursery you will be greeted and given a verbal hand over about any special moments from their day.
