Nursery – settling in session

Today was C’s first day of nursery so we are up early, she didn’t want to get out of bed at 1st but after I reminded her that she was going to nursery she was bouncing and rearing to go.
She was up, dressed, teeth brushed and I even managed to convince her to have some food. Grandad J asked her to pose for some pictures and I snapped a couple as well but she didn’t want to stay very still for them. She had her coat on and wanted to go by 7.45am but her session didn’t start till 8.15 am.

Once we left the house I got the obligatory outside the front door picture, I plan on doing it on the 1st day of school every year.


I took her and stayed with her for the hour as it was the first of her settling in sessions. We arrived on time and before her coat was even off she was off and wanting to paint.

She went and didn’t look back, no tears or reassurance needed, I’m sure she would have happily stayed for the full session on her own.

I finished sorting the forms out and got her uniform tops, which are a little big but she will grow into them.

She loved it, painting, playing in the house, playing with the other kids, getting out the musical instruments and playing with play dough.

They were just settling them down for circle time when it was time for us to leave, and she really didn’t want to go.

She will go back next week, and I know that she will love it there.

    I don’t have children of my own as yet, but I can imagine it must feel strange to leave them for their first day at nursery or school ‘on their own’ for the first time !

    That’s a really good sign that she didn’t want to leave. I am sure she will be fine for her first proper session. My eldest went for his proper session without any problems, it was me who was an emotional mess lol!
