Coats and Bags:
Please ensure that all bags, coats, shoes and lunch boxes are named and placed on your child’s named peg. Bags should contain a spare change of clothes, nappies, nappy bags and wipes if needed. Please try and keep the bags as small as possible.
Each week we have a different topic that the children or parents can choose. The topic is displayed on the door and updated weekly on our website and Facebook page. During the week the children are invited to bring in toys or books to do with these topics to show in circle time. Please do not let your child bring any other toys into the classroom as they may get lost or broken.
Early Years Free Entitlement:
You will be given a form to fill out for the early years free entitlement on your child’s first day. Please can a copy of your child’s passport or birth certificate also be handed in. If you are unable to make a copy, we can do this for you.
30 hours free entitlement Parents wishing to claim the 30 hours of free childcare must access an 11 digit DERN number before the start of the funding block that they wish to claim for.
We would like the children to be comfortable throughout the session and most of the children choose to wear slippers, pumps or crocs in the classroom. This keeps the classroom clean, the children are comfortable and learn to change their shoes independently for outdoor play.
After lunch the children are encouraged to clean their teeth. Children that stay for the afternoon session are welcome to bring in a tooth brush and toothpaste. Please keep in a little bag in lunch boxes.
If you are paying nursery fees and your child is off unwell or on holiday. Fees do still apply. An invoice will be given termly with how to make monthly payments.
Sickness / Holidays
If your child is unable to attend per school, please can you inform the school via email, text or phone call. (07718425943)
Collection of children:
If your child is being collected by someone other than a parent or child minder, please can you inform us at drop off. A name and password will be required otherwise children will not be released under any circumstances without these.
