The staff realise that the amount of time needed to settle in will vary from child to child. We are happy for parents to remain with their child for as long as they feel they need to. We will not ask a parent to leave their child alone. It is up to the parent to choose when to go, and they can, of course, telephone during the session to find out how their child is getting on. The pre-school will also telephone the parent if the child is particularly upset. If your child has difficulty settling, we will work with you to develop a plan that both of you are happy with. If you have any concerns, please come and talk to us.
