Before starting at the Arc you will be offered a date for your key person to come and visit you at your home. The visit will give you chance to meet your key person and allow time for you and your child to start to bond with them, it also allows them to learn about your child’s home routine, time for you to ask any questions you may have before starting at the Arc and for them to give you all the relevant paperwork needed. Please be aware that a home visit will only be undertaken if you live within a 3 mile radius of The Arc.
