We offer settling in visits to ease your child into the nursery setting at which you will get to meet your child’s dedicated keyworker enabling us to get to know your child a little more before they start with us, helping the transition into nursery easier for both your child and yourselves.

Each room runs on a similar daily routine helping your child’s transition from one room to the next smoothly.
