ur settle-sessions and key person approach allows our team to get to know the children really well and quickly identify and respond to their needs. Our team stay in regular contact with parents at drop-off and pick-up times in addition to parents’ evenings. We also use a program called ‘Parenta’ which allows parents to get daily updates on their children as well as see what they have achieved in their development at Embley.
Lunch and snack times
Our lunches are homemade by our resident chef Stuart and his team using local, fresh and healthy ingredients. We also provide a range of healthy snacks during the day. We serve milk and water at mealtimes and with snacks and cater for all dietary requirements. We join the rest of the prep school for lunch to help with transitioning up to Reception.
We work with parents to ensure our children follow a consistent daytime sleeping pattern. We have sleeping bags to ensure that children are safe and comfortable in our quiet areas.
Our nursery staff work very closely with parents to help ensure a consistent approach to toilet training is applied at home and Nursery. We have lower toilets which are designed to encourage confidence and self-sufficiency and we have potties (but parents are also welcomed to bring their own).
