Excitingly you’ve prepared everything; the uniform crease free and neatly laid out, shoes polished and a brand new backpack. Your little one is ready 10 minutes early and all set to go. Here at Buckingham Montessori we know first days at the nursery can be an emotional roller-coaster both exciting and nerving for everyone. Therefore, we’ve created tailor made sessions to suit the children as they take small steps towards settling in. The sessions also give us an opportunity to get to know you as a family; your child’s routine, likes and dislikes, favourite games and activities.

Day 1

The first session takes place for an hour. You and your little one spend the hour together in the nursery; so that they can familiarise themselves with their new surroundings.

Day 2

In the second session your little one spends an hour with you and an hour alone. As they get more familiar with the room and their key worker, they will slowly become more confident.

Day 3

Your little one takes their first step alone with their new key worker.
