just be yourself!! If you try to act differently you will end up stuttering and making yourself nervous, and the children will pick up on your nerves!
Just tidy up a bit, but make sure you have a good selection of toys out, and as ThePrisoner says, make sure you have your portfolio ready so you don't have to faff about getting everything together, and offer her tea, show her round etc, you don't have to do anything amazing, just act normal!
