• Attending Merryvale

  • Quality through integration

    Some children find it more difficult than others to adjust to being part of a larger family group, particularly part time children and we often ask you to bring them in every day for a short time.
    There is no charge for this settling in period. We know how stressful it can be for parents too and you are more than welcome to phone to see how your child is settling in!
    Each room has a booklet written specifically for that age group. When your child starts or moves rooms you will be given this guide to how the room works. Please click on the links below to find out more information on each age group:
  • To make the necessary adjustments between home and nursery as stress free as possible, parents will be expected to attend with their children for a ‘settling in’ period.
    This varies from child to child but two to three short sessions first with a parent and then for a short time on their own will result in a less stressful situation for both parent and child.
