Standard Session Times: Minimum 3 sessions over 2 days per week
We want your children to enjoy coming to our nursery therefore we operate with a minimum attendance/session policy to help children settle-in to nursery and a regular routine. In our experience children attending nursery for less than 3 sessions over 2 days per week really struggle to settle quickly which is both upsetting for you as a parent and for your child. So that both you and your child are 100% comfortable with our nursery we offer extended settling-in sessions so that when you finally do choose to leave your child with us, you will be confident that they’re happy. And we know if they’re happy, you’ll be happy!
