Daily routine & settling in

We want your child to feel happy and safe with us and when they first start at Preschool the staff will work with you to decide how best to help your child settle. You may stay for as long as you think is necessary to help him/her feel happy and comfortable and we encourage you to visit with your child before their first day, so they are familiar with the location and the staff.

During your child’s first few sessions, please feel free to ring or email us at any time if you would like to check on his/her progress; however, rest assured that we are a team of well qualified and experienced childcare professionals, who take time to get to know your child and his/her individual needs, interests and personality to ensure each child settles in as easily and quickly as possible.
