At Little Munchkins, our policies are always available on request. Please speak to a member of staff.


We update policies yearly however we review policies on a monthly basis during our staff meetings.


When your child starts Little Munchkins nursery it would help them and us if you could spend some time at the nursery as a ‘Settling in’ period. We understand that all children are different and will react in different ways during their settling in period.


We offer 1 settling in session for a period of two hours, which is included in your £25 set up fee.

While your child is settling in, the parents will meet their key worker and the key worker will have time to look through their "all about me" information and starting points to enable them to get to know your child further.


Settling in sessions are normally completed 1-2 weeks before your child starts. Our planning then leads on from their settling in session and specific activities are chosen from their interests that we have observed, as well as information from parents and carers. We understand that leaving your precious child with Little Munchkins is a big step and we are here help and make the process as smooth as possible, if you have any queries please do not hesitate in contacting us and remember we will work with you to support you both.
