Starting Nursery

Our bespoke settling in package

We provide a Feel Welcome booklet that is designed to ensure your first few months in nursery are as personal and seamless as possible.

Here at Petite we strive to ensure that every child’s start at nursery is as calm and enjoyable as possible. To ensure this we offer a bespoke settling in package tailored to each individual child and family.

Your child’s childminder will work together in partnership with you so that your journey with us is positive from the start. At the first settling in session, we invite you to stay with your child so that they can familiarise themselves with the room they will be in and the key workers who will care for them, whilst still having a familiar face nearby. As your child becomes more comfortable in the nursery, you will be able to leave your child for short periods of time to build their confidence ready for a full session at nursery.

During your settling in visits, we will ensure that we understand your child’s current routine, how your child likes to be comforted, if they have a special comforter, a favourite story or activity they like to do. Throughout your child’s time at nursery, We will tailor activities to suit your child’s interests.

All of our settling in sessions are free of charge and you are more than welcome to stay with your child during the first couple sessions if required.
