Before a child starts in the nursery we provide parents a tour and guide in the nursery where we give information about the setting. During the tour the parents also informed out settling in procedures and the key worker system. We allocate a key person to each child and their family before the child starts in the setting. The key person welcomes looks after the child and her parents at the child's first settling in session and during the settling in procedures. 

When the child is transitioning between rooms there are also a settling in period where the child would get familiar with the new room, new key person and the staff. The parents would be informed well before the transition and they would be supported through the process as well as the children. The key person would be available for the parents if they have questions and concerns.
