New Starters and Settling in

New Starters & Settling in!

We understand that it can be daunting leaving your child in childcare, so we want to work with you, to make the process as easy and smooth as possible, for both you and your little one.

We have an effective process to help, establish a relationship with your child, get them settled in our daycare facility and with our staff team.

We invite you are your child to come visit us, meet our staff team and have a full tour of our facilities. Your child will have the opportunity to play and see how they settle into their environment.

If you decide you would like your child to join us at Lifeday care you will come in for a visit to complete the relevant paper work, during this visit your child will have another opportunity to play and see how they settle into their environment.

If you would like we can arrange a home visit for our staff to come visit your child at home in a familiar environment, so they are able to get to know our staff.

After this we will set up ‘stay and play’ sessions – this is an opportunity for your child to come for a longer visit to see how they settle with their environment and our team.

Initially you will stay with your child so they feel comfortable and safe, after this you can leave them for an hour and then for a 2 hour visit.

We will continue to build on this session as much as your child needs to prepare them to be with us for a full session.

After each visit you will get a detailed handover from our team, highlighting what your child has done and eaten.

You will also be given access to an app which is updated throughout your Childs day.
