Settling your child into careFrequently Asked Questions

Yes, you are encouraged to work together with the carers at Eltham Woods to formulate an orientation plan that meets your family’s needs.  A gradual introduction involving you remaining at the Centre with your child over two shorter stays is recommended as it allows your child time to familiarise themselves with their new environment, the other children and their carers.  It also allows you to share information with the carers about your child and to observe staff and the centre.
