Enrolling at Sweet Peas
We welcome all children and parents, whatever their needs. Our enrolment process starts with:
- The invitation for parents/guardians to visit the nursery and admire the provision and receive an information pack.
- The detailed needs of your days and hours of care required are discussed.
- A deposit is required to secure a place for your child.
A flexible settling-in period will be arranged to ease the transition from home to the nursery environment. Settling-in takes 3 to 4 visits on average depending on your child’s needs. Each visit can vary from 30 minutes to 4 hours. During the first visits parents will be asked to complete the health care form and other relevant forms. Parents and children can familiarise themselves with the nursery environment, meet the staff and raise any queries they might have.
We are happy to give your child more time to settle in if required.
These visits ensure that each child feels secure and confident before their first day at Sweet Peas. All your child’s needs will be discussed and accommodated with our staff.
A key person will have specific responsibilities for your child. The key person will be expected to bond closely with your child, assess, monitor and guide your child throughout their journey through Sweet Peas. The key person will provide daily feedback to parents/carer about the progress of their child.
