We are connected to Brandon School Nursery Unit and have excellent relationships and links with them and their staff. Transition visits are organised between staff when the child is known to be moving into the new setting and information is shared. Parents are informed of transitions and invited to discuss concerns and arrangements with staff from Happytimes and school nursery well before transfer date.

We also provide this service when a child is moving to another nursery as far as is possible.
