Your key person

Your child will have a special person to link with when they come to nursery called a key person.

This member of staff will work very closely with you and your child to make sure your child settles well and that we meet  their needs.

They will plan carefully for your child’s development and learning and will communicate with you as much as possible.

We use an online learning diary, Tapestry that you will be able to view and contribute to on a smart phone or computer. We love to see photos, pictures and comments from parents about what their children have been learning at home.

We will invite you to come and talk to your key person about how your child is progressing at least twice a year.

The key person will complete an assessment for all the 2 year olds in their group. This is called a  2 year old progress check and is a statutory assessment.

 

What to bring to sessions

We do lots of messy things at nursery so please don’t send your child in their best clothes!

We do use aprons wherever possible and you can buy centre sweatshirts and polo shirts from us.

  • A spare set of clothes in a bag for your child to be changed into in case of an accident is very helpful and also nappies and wipes as needed.
  • Shoes that are comfortable and that your child can run and jump around in are important.
  • On hot days, please bring a sun hat and put sun lotion on before your child comes to nursery.

 

Illness

Please don’t your child to nursery if:

  • They are unwell with a cold, infection or bug
  • They have been physically sick or had diarrhoea (they must stay home at least 48 hours after the last occurrence).

Please ring us if your child is ill so we can note it down in our records.

We will phone you if your child becomes unwell during the nursery session and ask you or the person you have given as an emergency contact to collect as soon as possible.

 

Medicines

Please tell us about any prescribed medicines, drugs, health, diet or allergies that your child may have.

We can only give medicines to children if they are prescribed.

 

Meals and Snacks

All children will have a snack time with their key person where they will be offered fruit/healthy snack and milk or water.

If your child stays all day they will have a healthy lunch and/or tea which cater for all dietary requirements.

 

Daily routine

Coming soon

 

Trips and visits out of nursery

We aim to offer the children the opportunity to visit interesting places in the local area throughout the year and especially when the weather is better in Spring and Summer.

We will ask you to accompany on these visits as it really helps us but also supports you and your children learning together.
