We're here to help find the answers ĚýĚýĚýĚýĚýÂ to your questions, whether you're at the beginning of your story with us, or a longstanding part of our family.
Begin your childâ€™s story with us by phoning the nursery or filling out the registration form . Weâ€™ll get right back to you as soon as youâ€™ve taken this first step.
Come along, say hello and experience our special blend of individualised learning and purposeful play. Weâ€™re looking forward to meeting you and answering any questions you might have.
Youâ€™ll need to complete some registration forms which detail all the key information about your child and the days and sessions that suit you.
There is no selection process with us and we offer places on a first-come, first-served basis. Weâ€™ll then let you know when their place is confirmed and the next chapter in their story begins.
We make sure that children are safe, happy and inspired in our nursery. This focus extends to you too. From the very start of your story with us youâ€™ll be part of the SMŔ¦°ó family, and just before your child begins their early years learning, weâ€™ll invite them to some settling in sessions.
As they progress through our nursery, your child will have their very own key person and key team throughout every chapter of their story with us. They will meet your childâ€™s individual needs and work with you to ensure your child adapts well to new stages of nursery, whether thatâ€™s settling in when they first start or preparing them to leave for school.
We know your child is ready to take that promising first step and begin their story with us when our nursery, team members and your childâ€™s key person become familiar to them, and they start to engage with other children in activities.
Weâ€™re very experienced in being there for them when itâ€™s time to say goodbye. AÂ swift and reassuring goodbye is recommended and most children settle into the day quickly after, but weâ€™ll always let you know if that isnâ€™t the case.
If English isnâ€™t your childâ€™s first language, itâ€™s a really good idea to leave us a list of words to use when talking to your child. This helps them settle in quickly and feel understood. And of course, you can call us anytime to see how your child is doing.
Your nursery will also give you a list of things to bring on your first day, but if you have any questions about anything, please do get in touch with us.
We believe that parents who get involved in their childâ€™s early years education truly enhance it, so we work closely with you to develop a meaningful and communicative partnership. This involves letting you know the key parts of your childâ€™s day with us, from activities and daily routines to the food they have eaten.
We will update you on their progress during daily chats, and through our learning journals and discuss their development in more detail with you at parentsâ€™ evenings.
