Our Transition policy details how we aim to support you and your child as they start with us at nursery and as they move from one age range room base to another within the nursery.
We want all transition periods to be as smooth as possible offering support to both children and their families throughout the process, as we are aware that some children and their families can sometimes find transitioning into a new setting, and then moving rooms throughout the setting quite difficult.
