How are the children settled into nursery?

Once your child joins ‘LSN’ they will receive all the care and attention they need. The first time your child separates from you can be an upsetting experience – for you as much as, if not more than, your child! However, our sympathetic and well experienced staff can help make the whole process much happier and less traumatic.

Some children will settle at nursery very easily, whilst for others it may be more difficult and take a little longer.

For these reasons we admit the children in smaller groups. You will always be asked to stay with your child for at least the first few sessions and you are very welcome to stay for a short time at the start of any morning or afternoon session through the year.

Many parents and carers like to spend time with their child in the nursery looking at our activities and displays

How are the children grouped?

Your child will be assigned a Key Friend who will be responsible for ensuring that their introduction to the nursery goes as smoothly as possible. The key Friend will be responsible for working with the child’s parents and/or carer to ensure positive relationships are formed between home and nursery. Also to work closely on a daily basis to ensure positive continuity of care and to ensure secure attachments are formed and that your child is experiencing a rich and fulfilled experience whilst in our care.

‘LSN’ friendly, experienced and capable staff, are the backbone of the nursery. Staff are trained in health and safety, first aid and basic food hygiene, and are encouraged to extend, improve and update their training and qualifications.

The nursery manager is key to establishing the individuality of the nursery and is responsible for the day-to-day running of the

Uniform and Equipment

At LSN, we firmly believe that our nursery uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to our ethos and setting an appropriate tone which supports effective teaching and learning. Working with children, we have made a lot of progress towards achieving the consistent appearance of children in uniform and we are keen to maintain this, therefore all children should wear the specified which can be brought from the nursery.
