Starting your child at their First playgroup, pre-school, day care nursery or childminder can be exciting and nerve racking for both parents and children.

For many parents, it can be an anxious and emotional time. As parents you may be unclear about what happens in an early years setting or what to expect in terms of the environment and curriculum.
