Settling-In Policy


At the Rainbow Private Day Nursery we have a ‘Settling-In’ Policy as we aim to ensure children feel safe and secure in the absence of their parents / carers.

“Settling-In is an interim stage in the transition between home and the outside world. Children’s whole future attitude to new experiences could be affected by how this situation is managed. Due care and attention must be paid to a child’s needs for time to settle into a new setting” – E.Y.O. (1996)

Parents / Carers are encouraged to separate from their children for brief periods initially, gradually building up longer absences. Staff will provide support and encouragement to parents / carers during the Settling-In period.

There are no Fees charged during the Settling-In period.
