The Avenue Nursery Petersfield

Settling in

We welcome parents into the nursery and pre-school at all times, particularly as children are settling in. This relationship with the whole family builds bonds between the child, parents and key persons within our setting. 
Settling in visits of up to 2 hours at a time are recommended, and  parents may or may not choose to accompany their child.  Often parents will stay for a short while during the first session; staff will work with parents on the settling in process for as long as each child needs, to ensure they are comfortable within their new surroundings.
The Key Person
Each child has a key person to help tailor their care and learning opportunities to their interests and individual needs, and to record and communicate their achievements. Our teams work together across their key groups of children to ensure continuity of care and wellbeing across activities.
