Starting at our setting
The first days
We want your child to feel happy and safe with us. 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 setting. The setting has a policy about helping children to settle into the setting.
We provide protective clothing for the children when they play with messy activities.
We encourage children to gain the skills that help them to be independent and look after themselves. These include taking themselves to the toilet and taking off, and putting on, outdoor clothes. Clothing that is easy for them to manage will help them to do this.
We hope that you and your child enjoy being members of our setting and that you both find taking part in our activities interesting and stimulating. The staff are always ready and willing to talk with you about your ideas, views or questions.
Please let us know when you child is ill. The member of staff taking your call will confirm when your child will be able to return to playgroup using the Local Authority Guidelines.
We ask that if anyone other than you will be collecting your child that day, that you let us know and sign our ‘Going Home’ Book.
