Transition from Daycare to Nursery

Children move from Daycare (Nippers) to Nursery (Toppers) in the academic year in which they are 3 years old. Children who are eligible to move to Toppers in September will begin their transition far in advance of this: your child will spend short sessions visiting Nursery alongside a member of staff from Daycare. During these transition sessions, Daycare children join in with the Nursery routine and begin to make bonds with the Nursery staff members which helps to prepare them for a smooth transfer when the time comes.

Demand for places in The Royal Junior School’s Reception class is high and it is important that Nursery parents register their children for the Reception class upon entry into Nursery. Registered families will also be invited to attend the Reception class Discovery Day.
