Settling Your Child into Nursery Life
When children start a new setting, it is important for everyone that they are happy and settled. This is because they will be spending a considerable amount of time here and will need to be settled in order for them to develop to their full potential.
Settling in sessions are free of charge to show our commitment as a nursery to make this transition process as easy as possible for both you and your child. SpringKidz Nursery provides up to 8 hours free settling as part of your registration, this can be changed according to your child’s needs and development stage.
Settling in to a new environment is a very emotional process for all; it can be hard enough for us adults to settle into new environments so you can imagine how difficult it may be for young children. All children are different and therefore have specific requirements, the settling plan we will follow for your child will allow us to assess your child’s needs and development stage, helping us to make their nursery experience a more fulfilling and rewarding time.
Please do remember that settling is essential to help your child make a positive approach into nursery life and we recommend that you make sufficient arrangements to be able to help support your child through this crucial stage.
