The first few days
Coming to school for the first time can be a big change for young children. Suddenly the day is shared with lots of other children. It may take some time to get used to, and worried children cannot learn.
To avoid anxiety, we welcome you to stay with your child for as long as we feel it is necessary. Your child will have a key person who will help them to settle in and spend special times with them. We welcome you to share daily information with the key person.
Children begin by staying for half days. They can continue to do this until we all feel the child is ready to stay all day.
Please bring to our attention as soon as possible any particular needs your child might have, medical or otherwise, so we can support your child appropriately.
