If your contact details change could you please notify the office, so that we can change the details on our database. This is for the safety of your child in case of an emergency. Thank you.
Collection of Children
Could we please remind you that we do need to be informed if anyone different is picking up your child. A form is available in the office and is to be filled out giving all descriptions and contact details of the designated person collecting on that day.
Early Morning Risers
We have noticed that an increasing number of parents are arriving very early in the morning.
Please note that staff are required to use the time before 8:00am to prep the day’s activities, therefore, they are not permitted to take on the responsibility of your child any earlier than 8:00am, the time nursery is officially open. This is also an OFSTED and insurance requirement.
Health & Safety
Please can you provide your child with nappies, wipes, creams, sun-cream, Calpol or Nurofen when required. We do not have any spares and we are finding this difficult to change your child accordingly without any of their own products. This is for your child’s personal needs to be met. Thank you for your cooperation.

Activity for Valentines DayHere's a pretty sun catcher heart to display in your window for Valentine's Day. Children will enjoy tearing the tissue paper and creating their design.
You will need:
Tissue paper in red, pink and purple
Using our template (below), cut out a heart from card. Cut out the middle carefully.
Turn over so you are working on the back.
Paint the acetate with a layer of clear drying glue. Stick on ripped up pieces of tissue paper. Stick down any loose pieces with more glue.
Leave to dry.
