Settling Your Child into Bumpkins Nursery

Photo© Gareth Davies.07774899744.gareth@gdaviesphoto.com.www.gdaviesphoto.comAt Bumpkins Nursery, we want your child to feel safe, stimulated and happy and to feel secure and comfortable with staff.

We are here to help your child settle into their new environment quickly and easily.

Our Settle Sessions provide a structured settling in period before your child starts at the Nursery.
These sessions are completely child-led according to your child’s individual needs, and will take place over a period of time which works for you all.

Sessions are available between 10am-4.30pm.


We recommend a minimum of two visits to settle in


Visit 1
Time: 10.15-11.15am
Duration: 1 hour

This is the first visit for your child to Bumpkins Nursery and you will need to be present with them throughout. The Bumpkins Team will use this visit to ask questions, obtain information about your child, their routine and likes/dislikes. We will collate the required paperwork to enable you to leave your child on subsequent visits and for their start date at Bumpkins.


Visit 2
Time: 10-11.30am
Duration: 1.5 hours

During the second visit we encourage you to stay with your child for the first half an hour and then to leave them in the room whilst you go upstairs to the staff room and have a drink. By leaving your child, the Bumpkins Team can get to know them better, but at the same time you are on hand should they get upset.
If your child takes a little longer to settle then we are happy to offer more sessions

Visit 3
Time: 11am-2.30pm
Duration: 1.5 hours

During the third visit we encourage your child to join in with us at lunch time and to sample our tasty nursery meals.
We ask you to leave the nursery, go for a walk if you want to remain close by or pop to Tesco as a test run for the real thing!

Please note: For safety reasons, all paperwork must be completed and returned to us before you can leave the nursery premises


Visit 4
Time: 2.30-4.30pm
Duration: 2 hours

By having an afternoon visit, we help your child to experience tea time and the end of the day. You are encouraged to leave your child and go off-site.
Babies and very young children may need more sessions to settle
