Admissions & Settling In Process

The HIllview Nursery Team would like to ensure that from the very first time your child enters our nursery, its an enjoyable experience.  We work closely with our families to make sure that the settling in time is tailored to suit the needs of the individual child. 

Settling In Procedure

A key-person will be allocated to your child from their very first day. The key person will ensure that the child is welcomed into the setting and will support the child throughout the settling in period along with other members of staff.

First Session: 1 hour with 1 parent staying on site 

Your child will have the opportunity to explore the nursery freely, play where they choose to, and explore the different areas. Their Key Person will encourage your child to choose areas in which to play either independently or with other children.  At the end of the hour the Key person will feedback to the parent and devise  a plan to move forward based on the needs of the child.

Your child's key person will be responsible for giving verbal completing observations using the EY Log portal. Parents will be sent an activation link before the child starts in the Nursery. Parents can use the app to send absence notifications, upload photos of special events/occassions which have happened at home, and to update vital contact information.

If you have not received an activation link please email the main school on
