Nursery Policies

Thank you for visiting our page of Nursery Policies.

We are involving children, parents and staff to evaluate and update our policies and practices. Please do respond to surveys, questionnaires and/or feedback sheets so that your contributions can be valued and included.

We will post more policies up here as and when they are updated, and all nursery staff have been consulted and then agreed to the final draft.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Here is our Nursery Policy Updates Calendar for session 2018/19, so far.
