Starting Nursery

Starting Nursery
To arrange a visit to view the nursery with your child, please contact the nursery directly, or to register for a place complete our Registration Form and hand this into the nursery.

Settling visit
To support a smooth transition to nursery, FSN offers the opportunity for settling visits where you will meet your child’s keyperson and the nursery team and find out about activities and the routine of the nursery day. You can stay with your child, or leave them for a short period so that they get used to being in the nursery whilst also knowing you will be returning. The visits give us an opportunity to complete all of the necessary documentation to ensure the safety of your child.

Your first day at nursery
We ask that all children are supplied with the following as appropriate for their age and stage of development:-

 

A named bag containing:
  • Nappies
  • Wipes
  • Appropriate clothing (sun hat, wellington boots)
  • A change of clothing
  • A coat/jacket/cardigan
  • A healthy packed lunch – we ask that you do not send in any nut products (peanut butter etc.) to avoid risks for children with nut allergies

The nursery will provide milk, water and snacks daily.


We aim to keep the children clean and provide aprons, but we ask that you do not send your child to nursery in their ‘best’ clothes as we offer messy play daily such as art, gardening, and outdoor mud play.
