I am 'really' nervous about leaving my child at nursery - what advice can you give?

It is only natural to feel nervous when leaving your child, especially for the first time!  Many of our staff are mothers themselves and have shared similar feelings and experiences.  With that in mind we offer a number of strategies to help settle your mind and ensure as smooth a transition from home to nursery as possible for both you and your child.

Once your Nursery place has been confirmed, your child will be automatically be offered at least two Pre-Start visits and we can also arrange some ‘Stay and Play’ sessions. Whenever possible, if your child will be attending for a full day/s, we may also advise that your child starts with morning or afternoon sessions only for at least one week prior to starting their regular booking.

You can be reassured that our Nursery Manager and Team Leaders are highly trained and experienced in dealing with settling children in to the Nursery. They will be more than happy to allay any of your fears, as well as answer any of questions you may have regarding your child. Please feel reassured your child will be in good hands.
