Settling In

We at Green Top aim for our children to feel safe, stimulated and happy in the nursery. We want them to feel comfortable and form strong bonds with all staff. We also want parents to have confidence in both, their children's well being and their role as active parents.


We work to support parents and other carers help their children to settle in quickly and easily by giving consideration to the individual needs and circumstances of each child and their families.


The nursery staff will work in close partnership with parents to settle their child into nursery.


We will first arrange a 'show around' at which point parents and children attend and are given a guided tour of the nursery by a member of the management team. All introductory paperwork and price information will be given at this meeting with all questions answered and reassurance given to parents what may feel anxious


The next step is the '1st visit' again attended by parents this will last for 1 hour and at this stage your child's key worker will ask you to fill out an 'All About Me' document to help us to get to know your child before they start so that we can plan for their interests.




Depending on the child the next step would usually be a '2nd' visit, again for 1 hour but this time attended by the child only, some children settle straight away and do not need a second visit.


Hopefully after the 2nd visit your child will be ready to start at Green Top, however we do understand that some children will require a little extra care when settling in depending on how much time has been spent away from their parent or whether this is the 1st setting they have attended. In these circumstances we would work with the parent to tailor make their child's settling in experience.
