Caring for your Child

Caring for your Child

We welcome new starters from the age of 2 years (24 months) onwards.  We usually start children on the waiting list at the beginning of each half-term; however, we are able to start children during a half-term after discussion between yourself and the Manager.

To help your child to settle into pre-school we undertake a home visit as close to your child’s start date as possible.  This visit gives the child the opportunity to meet and play with their key person and to meet another member of our staff in familiar surroundings where they feel safe.  At this visit you will begin your child’s ‘Learning Journey’.  This will enable yourself and your child to get to know two members of our team thereby easing their and your transition into the world of pre-school.

The ‘Learning Journey’ is a portfolio of photographs, observations and your child’s ‘work’ created to demonstrate each child’s development. it is a progressive and dynamic document that changes and develops as your child grows and develops.  This “Learning Journey” is constantly under review and can be discussed at any time.  It also forms the basis for our parent consultations and parents/carers will be given the opportunity to review the document prior to these termly meetings.
