Starting your child with us

Settling In

Denton Island Nursery places the emotional well-being of children at the heart of its philosophies.  A child must feel safe, secure, and loved before they can explore, play, and learn.  In order to successfully settle a child into the nursery environment we give time, patience and sensitivity.

Leaving your child at nursery for the first time can be a very emotional experience both for your child and for you.

Developing a healthy bond between your child and those who care for them is vital to their wellbeing and giving a child loving reassurance when they are scared, hurt or angry is the key to giving children the best start in life.

We recognise just how important a child’s attachment to their family is for their emotional well-being and aim to create personalised settling-in programs for each child in partnership with families.

Thus, each child’s settling process is different and no child will start nursery with us until they are ready.

To help families prepare for this we have collated some materials that could help smooth the transition into nursery:
