The setting's policies help ensure that we provide a high quality service. A full list of our policies can be found in our documents section.
A disruptive child will be taken to one side and 'calmed' by talking the problem through.
We would like to emphasise that the high ratio of adult to child supervision contributes significantly to the smooth running of the Pre-school.
Any approach made to the Staff or Committee will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
A term's notice in writing is required if a child will no longer be attending Pre-school or for any reduction in days attended.
A child may not attend the pre-school until their registration form has been completed and returned to the Supervisor.
In case of absence, for whatever reason please notify the Supervisor, especially with a warning in case of an infectious disease (eg chickenpox).
If your child has been unwell or sick the day before then please do not send your child to Pre-school for at least 48 hours, especially after vomiting or diarrhoea. Please do not send an infectious child to Pre-school in the best interests of everybody.
A parent/carer of every child attending pre-school is expected to take their turn on the Duty Rota to participate directly in the pre-school. Parents/carers are typically assigned once or twice a term. The schedule is sent out by email at the start of the term. If a parent or carer is unable to assist the pre-school on their assigned day for any reason, it is necessary for the parent/carer to arrange for a substitute. (Please make sure that the Supervisor is aware of any changes to the Duty Rota and alter the copy of the Rota displayed on the notice board.) Should any parent be unable to take their turn on the Rota and are unable to find a replacement, they must inform the Supervisor as soon as possible so that cover can be arranged.
Pregnant mothers have the right to withdraw from the Rota if they so wish, but should inform the Supervisor and the Rota and Admissions Secretary. Nursing mothers are normally put back on the Rota when their baby is 12 months old (providing their older child is still attending pre-school).
Please be prompt in bringing your child, as late arrivals disrupt the session and unsettle children already attending. Also please be prompt when collecting your child as a child can often become distressed if parents are late. Thank you.
