What To Expect

At Kids Start, we help your child develop, explore, enjoy, and achieve in our safe, welcoming, and caring centres.


Even when your child is very young and is not yet able to talk, talking to them helps them to learn and understand new words and ideas.

At Kids Start, we use the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to shape our planning, so that we can make sure the activities we do follow your child’s unique needs and interests.

What Next?

After your initial look around, together we’ll plan and tailor your child’s settling in sessions.

We’ll introduce both you and your child to their key-worker, who will show them round the room and engage them in an activity and encourage your child to explore.

We’re happy to arrange sibling time if you have more than one child at the nursery. This helps to develop the bond between siblings, and aids the children while they’re settling in.

We produce summaries and reports on your child’s learning and development three times a year and hold Parents Evening once a year. 

These evenings are a great way to catch up with your child’s key-worker, and with the directors, managers and other staff. There is also opportunity to get involved in some music and sample Marco’s delicious food!
