Our nursery settling in procedure

At Maryam’s, we know how overwhelming  it is when your little one first starts nursery. Understandably, you’ve got a million questions about your child’s health, safety and day-to-day activities. That’s why we’ve designed a settling in procedure that makes the transition as smooth as possible.

The importance of settling in

Helping your child settle into nursery is of tremendous importance, especially if it is the first time they’ll be away from you. A good settling in process is meant to bridge the gap between home and nursery, and will help both you and your child adjust to spending time apart.

How your child is feeling

Being in unfamiliar surroundings with unknown people can feel overwhelming and can lead to feelings of anxiety.

This is why we have developed a settling in process to help your little one feel more comfortable.

Our settling-in procedure is designed to enable your child to begin to develop secure relationships with key members of the team and to prepare for the transition towards starting nursery.

It also enables us to get to know you and your child, in order for us to ensure that your child’s individual needs are understood from the outset.

Home Visits

As part of our settling in process, we organise a home visit ahead of your child joining us. Undertaken by one of our key carers, this will allow us to meet you and your little one in the space you feel most comfortable in.

It allows you to get to know us, ask questions and gather the information required to make the transition as easy as possible.

Please note that in accordance with our covid policy, we are currently doing virtual calls instead.
