Nursery Session Arrangements

Please accompany your child to the door where they will be greeted by a member of staff in the team. We ask that you are prompt and adhere to these times as it really impacts upon our adults and the children when children arrive late or picked up late and can impact on our staff ratios.

Nursery staff must know who is collecting your child at the end of each session. If there is a change to the normal collection arrangements, you must advise a member of the Nursery Team. If something unexpected happens whilst your child is at nursery, such as you are stuck in traffic, please telephone the school office at our Infant site on 01933 314161 as soon as possible.

Session Times

We are extremely flexible on days and sessions we provide. You can choose your days and sessions, and if we have space we will of course allocate the place to your child.

All Day session 8:50am – 3:15pm (2 sessions per day)

Settling in

We want your child’s journey at Alfred Lord Tennyson School to be a success from day one, so we aim to provide a successful settling in programme. We want to make sure that we answer all of your questions and queries and that we have all the necessary information about your child. As part of our settling in your child will have:

·         A ‘getting to know each other’ session where the parent and teacher meet in the Nursery provision to meet the staff and go through everything you need to know.

·         A ‘stay and play session’ for yourself and your child within the Nursery provision.

·         Two hour ‘Settling in sessions’ for your child to attend. The number of these sessions will depend upon how well your child settles.

If any of the above needs adapting for your child, we will do our best to make it work for them.

How to help your child prepare for Nursery

You can support at home by doing the following things:

·         Increase their independence in dressing themselves, putting on shoes and coats.

·         Toilet training

·         Talk to them about starting Nursery. Explain they will be having fun and meeting new friends.

·         Ensure that they know you will be back to collect them at the end of each session.
