Our experience with Jolly Giraffes
“Our little boy Finley started at Jolly’s in September 2020, this was in the middle of the pandemic & we felt really apprehensive about him starting but knew we had to take this step for his development & to allow me to return to work! I had already looked round the nursery before lock down so knew how welcoming the nursery was and how welcoming the key workers were. Before Finley started nursery I met with Kirsten one morning and spent some time with Kirsten and Finley in the outside play area for us all to get to know each other & I then left Finley for about an hour to go explore his surroundings inside. During this hour Kirsten also uploaded pictures to the app so we could see how well he was settling in!
Finley then started 2 days a week the following week. It did take him about 7 weeks to fully settle in, to be honest I thought it would’ve taken longer given he hadn’t spent a lot of time around other people because of lock down. The quick updates we get at the end of the day from Lillie his key worker are invaluable along with the daily updates on the app, we love to see how he is spending his day and we love it even more when he comes home covered in paint as we know he’s had a fun day!
We can’t thank Jolly’s enough for how much love and care they provide, they show a real genuine interest in developing & growing Finley! I will always remember how excited everyone was when Finley went back to nursery after Christmas walking!
Thank you for all you do & we can’t wait to see how Finley continues to grow whilst at nursery x”
Strong bonds are what it’s all about and at Jollies we pride ourselves on these and we thank all our mummies and daddies for working in such close partnership with us.
