Giggles Offer a variety of sessions at affordable prices
Settling in Sessions
We want your child to feel comfortable, safe and happy here at giggles. And we understand that changes of routine, new faces and a different environment can be daunting. We invite you and your child to spend four hours with us, completely free of charge spread out over two weeks. These settling in sessions are flexible. It is important that you as a parent feel 100% happy leaving your child in our care. By spending some time with us, we can answer any queries you may have before hand, and you get a unique insight into how your child interacts with us and the setting.
There are a whole host of emotions that as parents we go through when being away from our children. Our settling in session are aimed at positively reassuring you, and allowing you to get to know us. We welcome parents to call at any time to find out how their child is doing, and actively encourage this.
