We offer all families the opportunity for your child's key person to visit your home before your child starts their journey with usFind out more
After the home visits, you and your child will be invited to visit the nursery and become familiar with your child's key person and the environment. Your child is unique and may need several visits until you are happy for them to stay without you.
Your child will be allocated a key person, who will attend a home visit, support you and your child with the settling in process. This person will support your child on a day to day basis, particularly with care routines and also will complete daily observations and assessments which will identify your child's strengths and areas for development.
We believe this is important for us and your child, by working in partnership in a variety of ways with yourselves will enable your child to thrive and make continuous progress.Read more
