My child has never been to Nursery, how will you ensure they settle in?
Our aim is to ensure coming to us is a positive experience. We will discuss suitable arrangements with you before your child joins.
How do I know what my child is doing?
We keep parents informed at hand-over time, send out a weekly newsletter, and Pre-Nursery children have a day sheet. Each term we invite you to meet your child’s Key Person.
My child still has a sleep in the afternoon, is this possible?
Every child who needs sleep has their own sheet and comfy mattress. Please see our Sleep Policy.
Do I need to provide my child with a morning snack?
A fruit snack is provided with milk or water. We are a nut-free zone.
My child is still in nappies, is this a problem?
No, we work with you regarding toilet training. Nappies, wipes and cream are provided.
