• Items from home
We encourage parents / carers to let their child bring any item
which is used as a comforter (e.g. blanket, teddy, dummy etc)
with them to nursery to help them feel secure. However, could
we please request that you refrain from bringing large toys
or items of value. We ask that sweets are saved for home.
As we provide a varied curriculum including baking, painting,
gardening, clay activities etc.. it is important that children
are dressed appropriately so that they feel comfortable participating.
Aprons are always provided for such activities but it is inevitable
that clothing will become soiled when children are enjoying
As many activities will involve children sitting and crawling
on the floor area we ask that parents and carers provide a pair
of indoor footwear (e.g. slippers). During wet weather children
will still have the opportunity to access the outdoor play facilities
and so wellington boots are a practical addition!
• Other items
After lunch all the children will be encouraged to brush their
teeth and wash their hands and face. We will provide a towel
and flannel for each child in a labelled wash bag. We ask parents
to provide a named toothbrush for their childs use.
During hot weather we ask that children have their own sun hat
The nursery has CCTV cameras in operation 24 hours a day to
ensure the safety of children and staff on the premises. All
entrances to the nursery have security keypads which means that
only members of staff are able to gain access to the main areas
of the nursery.
All parents/carers are asked to supply a 'password' which can
be used by anyone authorised to collect their child. Under no
circumstances will a child be allowed to leave the nursery without
the relevant password being given.
