If your child is happy to enter preschool independently we will follow their lead, you will be contacted if your child becomes distressed. We therefore ask that you remain local and available to come into preschool at any point during their first sessions.
If however your child becomes unsettled at drop off then we do the following steps:-
The First Week
Step 1 - If all goes well the parent leaves at the main door, if the child becomes distressed the parent/carer can enter the preschool with the child.
Step 2 - If your child is happy for you to leave once you have brought them into the setting, the parent/carer can leave and we will contact you if they become distressed and cannot be distracted.
Step 3 – We will follow your child’s lead if they are happy to stay for the whole session independently we will let you know they are ok by text message and pick them up as normal at the end of their session.
Step 4 - If your child has still not settled then we will begin a graduated in take and discuss the steps with you.
If you wish to discuss this in further detail, please contact us.
