About the employer

At Honeybear House we have a key person system that helps the child settle at nursery. The key person is decided before a child starts and will meet them and the parents during the settle in visits.

Attachment and forming relationships is the basis of our keyperson approach.

A good key person system helps children to settle and feel secure at nursery.

By having a positive relationship with staff this will help with stress, health, forming relationships, language development and self-esteem.
