Throughout your child’s day at nursery, their key practitioner will observe and record their achievements and development, using an application called EyLog, to create a development profile. You will have the opportunity to view these profiles and any other reports during our regular parent teacher meetings that are planned three times a year.

 

Throughout the year you will be informed via our monthly newsletters of any events happening at your child’s nursery. Some of our events include, drama shows, dance shows, parent teacher meetings, and school photographer visits. You will be invited in to watch the children perform in presentations showing what they have learnt from some of their extra curricular classes.

 

Toddlers Inn Nursery accepts children from the age of 2 years upwards to 5 years.

 

Before your child settles in, we will ask you to complete some forms to help us better understand your child personality, likes and dislikes, as this will help us make your child’s settling in experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. A settling in process will be agreed between you and your child’s key teacher. The settling in process usually consists of your child attending the nursery for an hour every day for the first week, to make them familiar with the environment. This time is gradually increased over the first two weeks until your child feels comfortable attending your requested sessions.
