THE FIRST DAYS:

You will recieve a letter with the date and group your child will start in.

When the child starts in Roselia barnehage, it's important that one of the parents accompanies him/her the first few days. It is also a good idea that the child can stay for a shorter period of time these few days so the transition from home to nersery will be smoother. Allow the child to take a cuddly toy, dummy or other comforter to feel secure. We will want to hear what you as parents think is important for your child.

A good and safe start can prevent difficulties at a later stage.

Parents have to bring and collect the child. This is important so that home and nersery can establish good relations, and for safety reasons. We expect to be informed if anyone else is coming to collect the child.

 

Illness/absence

If the child is sick or for other reasons cannot come, you have to inform the kindergarten.

Well enough or sick?

"Is my child well enough to go today?" That is a question you probably will ask yourself many times. To decide whether your child can come or should stay at home, you should base the decision on the child's need. A sick and listless child needs a lap to sit on, quietness and care. In a nersery there will by many other children sho demand attention from the staff. The child can return when he/she feels strong enough to particioate in the normal activities both indoors and outdoors. Consult the staff if you are uncertain. If your child gets sick in the nursery, the parents will be contacted.

 

Collaboration between home and nersery.

An important part of collaboration will take place through daily contact. Daily talk and contact between the staff and parents is very important. When you bring your child we have the opportunity to exenge information about the child.

Expectations to parents:

  • tell the nersery if the child is sick or takes a day off, before 09.30 am.
  • make sure your child has enough extra clothes
  • bring nappies if the child uses that
  • bring a pram if the child needs to have a nap during the day
  • tell the staff if there is something they need to know so the child will have as good a day as possible
  • give the staff feedback if anything out of the ordinary has occured.
  • please ask if you have any questions.

 

Parents meetings

We have 1-2 meetings a year. These will be arranged in the evening.

 

Parents consultations

There will be arranged 2 parents consultations a year.  The conversations will resolve around the child's development and general well-being on a dayli basis. If necessary, both parents and staff can arrange extra consultations.

 

Birthdays

We celebrate the child's birthday in the following manner: the child recieves a crown, everybody sings a birthday song, sits on a birthday chair and the child will get a lot of attention. Parents don't have to bring anything.

We have educated and well-trained staff who will secure your child a good nersery education.

It's importent for us that children feel confident in us adults, so we priority to get to know the children well when they start in our kindergarten.

Norway is a multi-religous and multicultural society. So our kindergarten reflects and respects the diverity represented by groups of children. We also include values and traditions from Christian cultural heritage. 

The children need good care and good opportunities for activities and development.
