At Childhood Matters Early Years we are aware that the settling in period must be smooth and pleasant as possible for both children and parents.
You will be contacted to discuss your child’s settling-in and start dates.
Before the commencement of the placement, the child can avail of a settling in period, which provides for a part time stay in the crèche. This occurs over a week up to a maximum of two, if required. During this period the parents can stay with the child, or stagger their times with the child, increasing the time gradually that the child is left with the staff in the crèche. This settling period is free of charge. There is no settling period offered for the Afterschool & Sessional care (Pre-school).
Transitions involve a process of change that requires a period of adjustment for you and your child. To help your family adapt to change, we at Childhood Matters Early Years aim to provide as much continuity of education and care as possible. We will accomplish this by sharing information about your child and working closely with you, other providers who care for your child and any Primary School your child may move on to.
