Although nursery education is not statutory it is the first step on your child’s formal journey through education and as such it is vitally important that once they have started at nursery they attend regularly.

This gets children into the routine of getting ready and going to school every day and gives an important message about school attendance.

It also means that your child doesn’t miss out on any of the exciting learning opportunities that we provide and they continue to build relationships with the staff and other children.

Our group times at the beginning of each session are an important time for the children, it is when the main adult directed teaching takes place and it prepares the children for the rest of the session.

As such we would ask that you try and bring the children to nursery on time.

8:45 in the morning and 12:30 in the afternoon.

If your child is unwell then the best place for them is at home but we would ask that you let us know why they are not coming to nursery that day.

If your child is off without any communication from you we will contact you to find out the reason, if we are unable to make contact directly with you we will try the emergency contact numbers that you have provided.  If we are still unable to get in touch we may consider calling around to check that you are safe and well.

If attendance is a problem for you we will work with you to try and find a solution so please let us know.
