Stories to share

We have suggested a range of books that can help to prepare your child for nursery including stories that may help your child to understand their feelings about starting Nursery and spending time away from their home and family. Our job is to listen to any worries they may have and give them time to talk about them.

Stories are a great way of getting our little people to open up about the feelings they have inside. Here are some lovely stories which may help.  The stories are available online.
