Food bank collections

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated towards our food bank collection here in nursery. As you are all aware this is a fantastic cause and your donations have made a massive difference to families in need.

We will be holding regular food bank collections throughout the year.


On Thursday 7th March we will all be dressing up as our favourite book characters to celebrate and would love for the children to join in with the fun as well!

Mobile phones

Parents are reminded that mobile phones and camera devices are not to be used on site at any time. If you are on the phone you will be asked to finish your phone call outside of the nursery before you are allowed access.


If your child has had / or they need medication during their nursery day, we will require you to fill in a specific form for this on site, and a senior member of the team will check this over before we are able to administer this medication. A child must be having a prescribed medication for a minimum of 24 hours before they are able to attend nursery or we are able to administer this medication.


If your session starts at 8 you will be buzzed through to the nursery at the beginning of your session and not before, this is to allow the girls plenty of time to ensure the room is ready for your children. If you have any queries or concerns please speak with Kerrie or Amy.

You can find all of our policies in the Parent policy pack by the sharing library in the hallway if you wish to read through and familiarise yourself with them.
