General information

What to bring with you

Each child should have sufficient clothes for their daily needs, plus a spare set in the event of accidents; please remember to name all clothing and footwear. Parents are asked to ensure that children do not bring valuable items with them as the nursery cannot accept responsibility for any subsequent loss or damage.

Please bring suitable outdoor clothing, sunhats in the summer months, wellington boots, gloves and hats during winter months to ensure that your child can always benefit from outdoor pursuits.


Only medicines prescribed by a doctor or a form of paracetamol may be brought into the nursery. These must be clearly labelled with your child’s name, and dated. The medication must be handed to the manager on duty, who will ask you to complete a permission form. Life-saving medication must be accompanied by a completed care form.

Accidents and incidents

Despite extensive risk analysis and all efforts to remove hazards, accidents can happen. All such incidents are recorded and reported back to the parent/ carer, who will be asked to sign an accidents form. Where an accident is of a serious nature we will contact the parent/carer to advise them of what has happened and what action is being taken. Where necessary we will contact the emergency services.
