One of our strengths at Mere Nursery is supporting families as children settle into nursery. This begins from the moment you come to look around the setting; our aim is to help you to feel comfortable and find out about your family’s needs and how we can support you during the settling in sessions. Research shows that children settle into a new environment through a gradual process supported by trusted adults.
Our transitions follow a flexible schedule which allows parents to feel comfortable before children are left in our care:
Once your child starts completing full sessions at nursery we make sure that you are regularly updated with how your little one is getting on. We encourage you to call/email as much as you want to and in turn we will make sure we upload regular pictures to your child’s online learning journal so you can see what they have been up to. Alongside this we regularly hold parent events to ensure you are regularly involved with all aspects of nursery.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to The Mere Nursery team. We have recently relocated from Hong Kong and I was really nervous for my son and concerned with how he would adapt to the change. The team were fantastic, friendly and professional and ensured he had a great summer learning and playing. I can’t recommend the nursery enough! Space is wonderful and a great place for children to explore and grow.
My son has started with Mere day nursery in the last couple of weeks. My husband and I have been extremely impressed with his settling in process and are very happy with the care being provided by the centre.The manager, my son’s key worker and the rest of the team have been focused on finding out about my son and getting to know him as a little person. My husband and I have both had the opportunity to spend time at the nursery and get to know all of the lovely staff.
The level of knowledge of my son’s key worker is a cut above our experience with nurseries in the past and we feel he is being given a lot of personal time and attention.
We are very chuffed with our experience so far and would recommend to people thinking of enrolling their kids.
The Mere welcomed my daughter to their nursery in April this year, the welcome we received from all the staff was more than I expected and it didn’t take her long to settle right in as a result of such a warm welcome. The facilities at the nursery are well equipped for children and I feel that my daughter’s development since attending Mere has flourished.
