Settling in

We know that children need time to feel safe and secure in a new environment and to build confidence in saying goodbye to parents. As a guidance we offer six settling in sessions in which parents and the key worker support the child to adjust to their new environment.

We start the settling in period with a home visit. Home visits support our early years professionals to build up a warm caring relationship with the child and parents/carers. Moreover, meeting the family in their natural environment supports the development of a solid partnership with the family. After the home visit, we suggest around six settling in sessions. When the child and parents are feeling confident and confortable to start nursery, the child stays for the planned session.

Each child is a unique individual and at Pooh Corner we do our best to make sure that children and their parents are feeling confident before starting with us.
