Policies

Yeladenu has a comprehensive set of policies which are permanently and readily available by the parents’ noticeboard to be read.
 

The Pre-school's policies and procedures can be emailed on request or hardcopies are available for every parent/carer. We encourage all parents to read through the policies when starting the Pre-School. 

Settling In

Starting preschool is obviously a big step in any child's life and the way in which they respond will vary. A child who is tense or unhappy will not be able to play and learn properly, so we encourage parents/carers and staff to work together to help the child feel confident and secure in the group. We recognise that this takes longer for some children than for others and parents/carers should not be worried if their child takes a while to settle. Please feel free to speak with your child’s key person or the Manager, Helen Style, if you have and worries or concerns regarding the settling of the child.
