Please read additional areas in our parent agreement that we have up dated, you signed this when you registered your child when they started nursery.

How do I discuss my child’s development?

We hold 2 parents evenings a year at the setting whereby each parent can book a timeslot to speak with their child’s key worker. During the meeting the child’s file will be available to view and discuss. We also display the children’s work and photographs of your children for you to see. Managers are also available to talk to at the parents evening. In addition to this, we have an open door policy whereby we encourage our parents to pop in and chat with us about their child’s needs and/or any concerns at any time. Your child’s key worker will also be available on a daily basis to discuss your child’s progress and chat about any issues.

When is the nursery open?

We are open from 8am-6pm, Monday to Friday, for 51 weeks of the year. The only closures at the setting are for Bank Holidays and between Christmas and New Year.

Failure to collect a child

If a child is not collected within 30 minutes of the agreed time and we have not received a telephone call, we will contact the emergency contact numbers. During this time, we will continue to safely look after the child. We will charge £5.00 per 15 minutes for this service.

This week the weather has been very hot and reaching temperatures of 27c, can we ask all parents to ensure that children have sun cream on before coming to nursery so that if staff plan to they can just take the children out when they arrive.

Please find these tips on how to keep your child safe in the sun:

  • - Encourage your child to play in the shade – for example, under trees – especially between 11am and 3pm, when the sun is at its strongest.
  • - Keep babies under the age of six months out of direct sunlight, especially around midday.
  • - Cover exposed parts of your child's skin with sunscreen, even on cloudy or overcast days. Use one that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or above and is effective against UVA and UVB. Don't forget to apply it to their shoulders, nose, ears, cheeks, and the tops of their feet. Reapply often throughout the day.
  • - Be especially careful to protect your child's shoulders and the back of their neck when they're playing, as these are the most common areas for sunburn.
  • - Cover your child up in loose cotton clothes, such as an oversized T-shirt with sleeves.
  • - Get your child to wear a floppy hat with a wide brim that shades their face and neck.
  • - If your child is swimming, use a waterproof sunblock of factor 15 or above. Reapply after towelling.
  • - If you plan to be out in the sun long enough to risk burning, sunscreen needs to be applied twice: 30 minutes before going out and just before going out
  • - Remember to drink plenty of water to ensure you keep hydrated.
