Kidz Kabin Childcare Nursery in Muswell Hill
Settling In

Childcare day nursery at Fortismere School for children aged 2 to 5 years

Settling In For The First Time

Child with BalloonSome children settle in very easily, others may take a bit longer! We understand that some parents may feel a little upset at leaving their child, which is perfectly natural. However, we pay close attention to the needs of the children and their parents to make the settling in process as smooth as possible. Although we encourage parents to engage with their child during the settling process, we ask that they liaise with staff regarding the amount of time spent in the room. Staff will ensure parents are kept fully updated on their child’s progress whilst they complete the necessary paperwork in the comfort of our reception area. We have 6 tried and testing settling in options over a week or two weeks, the details of which are in the table below.

In some cases children may find it difficult to settle according to the schedule timetabled below. In such cases, parents may be asked to settle their children for a smaller number of hours each day, over a longer period of time to ensure that they create a positive association with the setting, children and staff. W e will work with all parents to cater for the individual needs of each child. We ask that parents plan to be flexible during the first few weeks of their child starting nursery.
