Settling your child in to pre-school

Pre-school will be a new experience for your child. We want your child to feel happy and safe at pre-school and for the transition from home to pre-school to be an easy one. To make sure that this is the case, the staff will work with you to decide on how to help your child to settle into the pre-school.

We encourage you to make visits to the setting with your child before he/she starts so that they can become familiar with the surroundings.

When your child starts pre-school, it may seem strange to begin with, and they may feel upset or anxious. Once you have settled them at an activity or with a member or staff, explain that you will leave them and that you will come back later. Your child should soon settle into the routine, but we will always telephone you if there are any problems. You are also very welcome to ring us if you feel concerned once you return home.
