Any children left uncollected after 15 minutes will result in Nursery contacting social services.

Home Visits

        This was decided through research into the Benefits of Home-visits.  Parents Early Years and Practice (P.E.A.L), say “There are real benefits to visiting children in their homes. Parents and children often feel really relaxed in their own home and parents appreciate having time to talk on a one to one basis.” Visits will be arranged with you and will be attended by your child’s key Carer and Co Key Carer.
