Little Echoes Children


Settling In

Settled in OK!

The First Days

Introductory sessions prior to the agreed start date assist with settling in to the nursery. A child who is tense and unhappy will not be able to play or learn properly, so it is important for parents and staff to work together to help the child to feel confident and secure. This may take longer for some children than for others; parents should not be concerned if their child takes a while to settle.

What to Wear

In order to feel free to explore and experiment with all kinds of materials, including messy ones, it is best to send children dressed in clothes that are comfortable and easily washable and not in their ‘best’ outfits.

It is good for children to practice the skills that will make them independent: simple clothing they can handle themselves will enable them to go to the toilet when they want to. It is advisable to provide outdoor clothes that can be put on and taken off without being too dependent on the help of others.
