In the Nursery at Calcot Schools we want every child to settle confidently and happily into our school as they take this exciting step in their lives. We recognise that you are your child’s first educator and we aim to work in partnership with you, so that your child gets the very best learning experience


Settling and Transitions

We feel that it is important to work together during the settling in period.  Parents and Carers know their own child well.  All children are different and each settling in time needs to reflect this.  We hope that by the time your child starts nursery you will have had a chance to attend some stay and play sessions and received a home visit from their key worker.

It is vital that children maintain regular attendance in order for us to ensure that their learning progresses and they are able to reach their full potential.  Please phone the school to inform us if your child is absent from nursery for any reason.  Children's attendance is regularly monitored and will be reviewed each term.

We ask that you arrive promptly to bring and collect your child at the beginning and end of each session; children benefit from the regular routines that nursery provides, and feel more confident when they arrive at the same time as others, in addition it reduces disruption to learning.  However, we are aware of the challenges of family life; please speak to your child's key worker if you are finding it difficult to manage your child's attendance; and we will do our best to support you with this.
