New to Robin Class
If your child is starting nursery they will be allocated a date for a settling in session. This is a shorter session lasting 2 hours and it gives your child the opportunity to get to know the early years staff and to meet their peers. Parents are able to stay with their child for part of the settling in session if they wish. This can be discussed with the early years staff on the day.
Every child is an individual and children may settle in straight away or may need a few more sessions to settle into the nursery routine. Early years staff will work with you and your child to ensure their start to nursery life is a happy and calm experience.
Your child will also be allocated a start date and this is the date when payment/funding will start from.
Invoices are issued half termly and if you would like further information regarding your invoice or funding enquiries please speak to Jackie Houghton in the school office.
New to Wren Class
Children start Wren Class from the September following their fourth birthday. In the summer term prior to this you will be invited to an early years information evening for parents and a transition morning for your child to attend Wren Class.
You will also be given information regarding dates for Home Visits and the dates your child will attend school before starting full time. Transition into school is a gradual process and this offers your child a positive and calm start to life at Maulden Lower School.
