We understand that leaving your child for the very first time can be stressful and upsetting for you and your child, at St Andrews we can work with you in partnership to try and make this a easier transition.
Settling in sessions, this is where you and your child can attend St Andrews before your child starts officially, this is where you will meet your child's key worker and share the relevant information needed about your child so we can learn about your child's interests, culture, religion, to see if your child has any medical conditions, disabilities or allergies, this will allow us to prepare for when your child starts creating new attachments and bonds meeting your child's individual needs.
You can come with your child to as many settling in sessions to benefit your child until you feel confidant your child is happy, these first settling in sessions are very important so we would like to make the process as smooth as possible for you and your child to make it an easier transition.
At St Andrews we create partnerships with parents to work alongside you, to support your child flourish developing in the key areas.
