We want to make sure your child has the happiest start to school life at Happy Hours so we have put together a special plan to ensure this happens.

It is really important that the teachers and parents work together to guarantee this happens. Here at Charans, we feel that it is a partnership between home and school and please never hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We have a strict policy that parents need to leave their child with their teacher and not stay too long when they first begin. With all our years of experience and trials we now know that the best way for your child to separate from you, is with a confident farewell and to not stay too long. The longer the parent stays the harder it is for the child and for the teacher. If your child is very unhappy the teacher will always call you to request you to return and if your child has settled easily, the teacher will encourage you to not return until collection time.

You will work very closely with your child’s teacher and decide what is best for your child. Each child is different and some children settle in very easily into school life, while others find it harder.Many children will settle in within one morning at school whilst others take up to a term, this is very normal. Patience is key, as well as a consistent routine at home and at school, that really makes a big difference.

It is important that parents and staff communicate and work in partnership with each other to ensure we build a good foundation for your child’s time at Happy Hours.

Please honour our settling in process, as we believe that this is the most successful way of your child having a happy start to school life.
