Welcome Pack

Welcome to The Nursery School! We look forward to sharing our happy, homely environment with you. Here is some information and tips for you and your child/children during their time at our nursery.

Key person

Your child will be allocated a key person, based on which member of staff they seem most comfortable with, who will be responsible for monitoring their development and looking after their well-being. The key person will make sure that your child settles into nursery well and provide any emotional support that your child requires during the settling in process. The key person will be a familiar figure who is always available to your child. They will also discuss your child’s development with you on a termly basis and be your first point of contact for your child’s time spent at The Nursery School.

Home visit

Before your child starts at The Nursery School, we will offer an optional home visit from the manager or your child’s key person. If you choose to welcome us into your home, your child will see us as friends and understand that the people who will be caring for them are trusted by you. On a home visit, we will chat about your child, learn their current interests and answer any questions you may have. We will visit you shortly before your child is going to start nursery so that the gap between seeing us and starting nursery is as short as possible for your child.
