It is important that every child has at least two settling in sessions. 


At Domi Domingo, we do a very calm settling in process, based around your needs and more importantly, that of your child. For our younger children this starts with a home visit. The manager or the deputy and your child’s keyperson will come and visit you at home and begin to develop those initial relationships with your child.

Following this we ask for you to visit Nursery with your child, and for both of you to stay for an hour. This give you chance to show your child around their new room and show them that you are comfortable with the setting.

We then ask on the second visit that you bring your child and leave them for a short amount of time. Your keyperson will be able to advise on this. We gradually build the time up in the following visits until your child is in for a full session. These visits will include at least one mealtime and a sleep time if they need a sleep during the day. We don’t have a set number of settling in sessions and will do as many as needed. It is important to us that your child is fully settled and that you are comfortable leaving them!
