HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR CHILD’S FIRST TIME AT NURSERY?

The first-day nursery is a momentous occasion for a parent and a child. You will, of course, see that one sobbing mum still hugging her child at the nursery entrance after having said goodbye four times already, but don’t let that be you! Feeling guilty or upset about leaving your child will be sensed by your little one and will just upset them too, making them less likely to want to go.

We believe that the key to early years education is to provide children with a warm and caring environment that is safe and run by experienced, qualified staff. Our teachers are committed to ensuring that every child feels safe and happy, to nurturing a lifelong love of learning and guiding them to become successful, confident, well-rounded and caring learners. So give a cuddle, a confident smile and tell them that they will have lots of fun – and that you’ll see them later.

Communication

As your child continues to attend school over the next couple of weeks, keep talking to them to make sure everything is okay. Stay in touch with your child’s teacher to check up on how they are settling down.

At the Little XCL World Academy Nursery, we value the importance of establishing a solid partnership between home and school. Our learning journey with your child is a partnership, a triangle involving the child, parent and teacher. We encourage families to speak directly to class teachers face-to-face. We know that you might be worried about your little one and would like to know what they are doing in a class during the day. That is why teachers share videos and photos of your child’s Nursery experience via our secure digital platforms, providing feedback on how your child is progressing and communicate important information to you.

Keep Busy

You may find that your child is so busy taking part in nursery activities that they scarcely have time to miss you – but after so much time spent together, it’s quite likely that you’ll miss them! Don’t mope about the house feeling glum, instead use the time to return to work, complete errands or meet new friends at a new school over a cup of coffee!

The school offers a strong sense of community and provides a warm and supportive environment for both parents and children. There can be a lot happening for a family joining a new school. This is why our Parent Relations Team is here to support our parents. They are always willing to offer advice for settling into the school, help to connect with the Parent Teacher Community and invite you to join upcoming parent engagement sessions and school events.

Trust

Trust your judgment that you selected a child care setting where your child will be happy and receive nurturing care and love. Nursery educators are fully trained professionals.

At the XCL World Academy Nursery, we work with parents to ensure a supportive and smooth transition into nursery. We have created a safe, caring and stimulating learning environment where children can begin to take their first steps towards growing independence and learning how to learn.
