Establishing a relationships
Starting a new nursery can be scary for both the child and more so the parent! Here at Jigsaw our aim is to make this time as smooth and relaxing as possible.
Children settle gradually into our Nursery and form strong attachments with their key person and the other children. We establish good relationships with the child and their parents/carers through settling in sessions ensuring that everyone is happy before the child starts. Affection is readily given and received, and individual care routines are incorporated into the day.
A key person is assigned to the child and the parents who will build upon a positive relationship together and make strong communication links throughout. The key person will update parents/carers regarding their child’s settling in progress, by consultations and daily feedback. As every child is different there is no set number of how many settling ins they have.
