Off road parking
There is off road parking at the nursery to ensure the safe drop off and collection of your child. This is located to the side of the building through the blue gates.
Children should wear comfortable clothing to nursery, please be aware that we do participate in messy activities and although children do always wear aprons which we provide, their clothes may become wet or dirty. SPare clothes are very useful as children are often changed through the day due to messy play or toileting accidents. We provide pegs and trays for your child to store their belongings. It is always helpful if clothes are labelled as often children have identical items of clothing.
Security is important to us, our premises are controlled by secure entrances, and CCTV. Any person visiting the nursery will have their identity checked if they are not a recognised person. Only persons named on the registration forms can collect a child, unless we are notified beforehand in writing giving us security details, this may include a photograph or photographic identification.
