Starting nursery can be an exciting but also anxious time for you and your child, we hope to make this time as comfortable and pleasant as we possibly can and will answer any questions you may have.

Settling period consists of a minimum of two days and could go on for the whole week; this will depend on how the child reacts on their first day.

At Play and Learn Day Nursery we understand that the separation between the parent and child can become upsetting, but please rest assure, that the nursery will certify that we will make this time as comfortable and pleasant as we possibly can.

As part of our settling-in process we encourage this to be done a week or so leading up to the start date. This is so your child can familiarize themselves with the routine, staff and environment. During the settling-in period your child with have a Key Person assigned to them, the Key Person will be responsible for observing and assessing your child’s development as well as settling them and building a connection with them.
