Prior to your child actually starting Bright Beginnings
We will arrange a number of visits leading up to the actual start date. Initially we ask you to accompany your child for an induction visit, followed by short visits where we ask you to leave them for couple of hours. We will then extend the visits so your child eventually spends a couple of days with us prior to the actual start date.
This is generally the ideal way to introduce children to the Bright Beginnings, but we can be flexible and recognise that each child is an individual who will accept day care in their own way. Some children need lots of visits whilst others can visit for an afternoon and be quite happy to stay and start attending the Centre straight away.
As you carry out your visit you will be asked to complete a child information form. This gives us written information to help us get to know your child. The document generally looks at your child’s home routines and enables practitioners the opportunity to look at how they will best integrate your child into Bright Beginnings.
