Why do nursery teachers do home visits?

The main purpose of the visit is to introduce ourselves to the child before they start with us. It's to have a friendly chat, have a little play and cover any questions the parents have in a relaxed atmosphere. And it's all a bit less daunting for the child when this is done in their own environment.

Any new children starting in the Reception year for September, who have not attended Ferndale Nursery will also be offered a home visit so that the teachers can get to know all children starting school.
