Getting Ready to Start School

Starting Nursery


All children will be given a date that they will start Nursery.  From that date, your child(ren) will attend part time for 2 weeks - this is to make sure that all children feel settled in their new class.


Throughout their 2 weeks part-time, the school will identify whether your child(ren) has shown that:


· They have used the toilet independently.

· They are able to separate from their parent/ carer and can settle within a reasonable period of time.

· They are able to join in with activities in the class alone or with a friend.

· They are starting to respond to instruction from adults in the setting.

· They are starting to develop positive relationships with adults and other children in the setting.


By the Wednesday of your child’s second week of school  you will be informed about whether your child will be attending full time the following week.
