Settling In

Settling In

We offer a free settling in sessions for every child who is starting nursery. You can choose to stagger your starting sessions for example starting part time and progressing to full time, if you wish.

In your settling in session, you will have the opportunity to meet the teams within your child's room, learn some more about their daily routines and experiences on offer and let your child stay within the nursery for their first visit. 

Every child is different and we will work with parents and children to ensure that they enjoy their time with us and get used to the nursery environment. 

What to bring

It would be helpful for you to please bring the following for your child starting nursery:

All Children

  • A change of clothing (named) in case of accidents
    A pair of slippers or soft shoes for indoors
  • Wellies or other outdoor shoes
  • In the colder months: a warm jacket, scarf, gloves and a hat.
  • For the warmer months: a sunhat and sun cream


  • 2 bottles (which we will name and sterilise after use)

We provide waterproof all in ones for the children at nursery to keep them dry when they are outside in wet conditions.  Perfect for puddle splashing!
