Settling In

Stay and Play

We understand that leaving your child for the first time can be emotionally challenging for both parents and children and that is why we treat every settling in session individually. When you have booked your child in Tiny Toes their journey with us will begin you will be given a free hour stay and play session, this enables them to build a bond with their key person before they attend the nursery.

Each parent is asked to complete a form called “all about me”  which will tell the Key person and staff that work with your child all about what they like are and dislike.

 .Each child will settle into nursery differently and we aim to work with parents to make it as easy as possible, if your child still is not completely confident to be left without parental support a personalised plan can be made to ensure your child’s emotional development is our first priority.

Your child’s online journal

At Tiny Toes we record each child’s development using Tapestry. Tapestry is an online journal, once a child joins Tiny Toes they are given an account where parents can log into and see their child’s development as well as having an insight into their time at nursery with photographs.

Tapestry is a secure online Learning Journal to record photos, observations and comments, in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, to build up a record of your child’s experiences and development during their time with us.

Tapestry provides each individual child with their own Learning Journal held online. Parents and carers are given their own log-in using their email and password, to enable them to access their child’s learning journal at any time.
