Starting Nursery

Settling

In order to support your child to settle in we will arrange numerous settling in visits. Once your child joins our Foundation Unit they will receive all the care and attention they need. The first time your child separates from you can be an upsetting experience for you as much, if not more than your child! However Little Gems sympathetic and well trained staff can help make the whole process much happier and less traumatic.

Little Gems Foundation Unit is a welcoming and joyful setting. When your child joins Little Gems they will be assigned a key person who will be responsible for ensuring that your child’s introduction to Little Gems goes as smoothly as possible. If there were any problems these would be quickly and efficiently addressed by your child’s key worker and the setting manager if need be. When your child joins Little Gems Foundation Unit they will be asked to fill in a form which will provide us with all the necessary information that we need, such as contact telephone numbers, allergies, names of people who will contact him or her on a regular basis, security passwords etc.

Above all, this is a time when parents are always welcome to discuss their concerns and resolve any teething troubles. Your child’s first few weeks at Little Gems Foundation Unit will be the foundation of a happy, secure childhood.
