The nursery is open 51 weeks of the year but closed for statutory Bank Holidays. Christmas opening times will be confirmed nearer the time.
Please mark CLEARLY all clothing etc…. with your child’s name. We also ask parents whose children are not fully trained to provide a drawstring bag clearly named containing a change of clothes in case of accidents. Nappies must be provided, as the nursery does not carry supplies. Could you also provide a sun hat and sun cream during the summer months.
Children must not bring jewellery, money or other valuables to the nursery, nor should they bring toys, sweets, chocolate or chewing gum.
It is very important that we are informed if your child is absent. If we have not been notified within one week, your child’s place at the nursery may be offered to someone else.
There is no set age by which a child is magically dry and clean. Children are individuals and vary in achieving their development milestones. Once you start this process with your child, please inform the staff so we can help.
In the interest of all the children attending the nursery, if your child has diarrhea, sore throat or a rash, please keep him/her at home until the symptoms have disappeared or your GP has given clearance. In the instance of diarrhea could you please keep your child off for at least 48 hours. If your child becomes ill at nursery, we will make every effort to contact you. Please note, we reserve the right to remove any child to hospital in an emergency.
