Children’s Attendance and Registers

23rd August 2019

It is very important that ALL parents remember to sign their children IN and OUT of nursery on a daily basis. Please also let us know by 10am if your child will not be attending nursery on that day. Staff will contact parents after 10am to ascertain the whereabouts of your child. This is in line with our Child Protection and Health and Safety Policies. Thank you.

Huge congratulations to Chloe and Taylor who have recently completed their SVQ childcare qualification. They are now fully qualified practitioners. Great achievement! Congratulations also to Lisa.
