Settling in

Starting Kindergarten or School represents a significant change in a child's life and it is important to establish the setting as a friendly and familiar place. The Key Person system gives each child a special adult at DUCKS that they can bond with and turn to.

We offer a home visit, a taster day and a staggered start with plenty of time together in the setting to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible. In the early days we encourage you to come into the classroom with your child and spend as much time as needed to ensure he or she feels secure.

Our welcome pack includes information for you about all aspects of the school, and a child-friendly booklet about the adults in the school and the many activities they can look forward to at DUCKS.
