HOURS OF OPENING

The Nursery is open from September to June, Sunday to Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Please keep time as it is important that your child arrives and leaves on time. The lessons start at 8:00 a.m. and pick up is at 1:00 p.m. At the end of the day we do advice parents to be on time for collection. Upon collecting the child, you or the nanny should sign on a special form to ensure security.

 

VISITING OUR NURSERY

We have an open door policy. Parents are warmly invited to view the Nursery and we always look forward to showing you around between 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. or by appointment.

 

GETTING READY TO START

To settle your child into nursery as quickly and as happily as possible, we recommend the following:

  • Prepare your child for the Nursery by talking to him/her in advance.
  • Attend class with your child the first 2 days for around 1 to 2 hours.
  • Help your child feel that there is a good connection between you and the teacher so that the child would feel safe with her when you are not there.
  • Try to enter the classroom with a positive and confident attitude so that your child will know that you are happy in the new environment.
  • After the third day, please try to make your “goodbye” as brief and cheerful as possible. It will make your child feel worse if you spend a lot of time with him/her before you leave the class.
  • When you collect your child, always ask him/her about their day at the Nursery and the different activities he/she has accomplished. Act positively and show encouragement and appreciation.
