DD is just 2, oldest DD has started school so we wanted her to go to nursery we used to take oldest to whilst she still remembered staff etc. Initially I've put her in just one morning a week, but wondering if she needs 2 mornings to settle. Anyone with any experience to advise?

I doubt you can do just one mornings
In our nursery we insist on a minimum of 2 sessions as 1 session is not enough to enable them to settle, form friendships and bonds with adults and children
Its not long enough either for us to monitor and assess her learning and development

2 I think. It will be very hard for her to settle with just one morning a week

Defo do two, one isn't enough to make friends and settle.

I would do two. Easier to settle and becomes more familiar

Like insancerre, at the nursery where I work we don't offer the option of doing a single session, for all the same reasons as she gives.
