You will be allowed to stay and settle your child for as long as is agreed with the Nursery Manger. We recommend that you introduce your child gradually into the nursery routine over two free sessions. A named key worker will be allocated to your child.
The nursery provides the option for families to choose for nappies and wipes to be supplied during their attendance at nursery or for them to provide their own.
The charges for Fun Foundations supplying nappies and wipes are as follows:
The nursery supplies an option of SMA, Cow & Gate and Aptamil formula milk for babies up to the age of 12 months. Following this the nursery provides full fat milk up to two years and semi-skimmed milk for two years plus.
It is your responsibility to inform the nursery immediately if your child has, or develops an allergy, asthma or a medical condition and to provide the nursery with full information regarding the condition and treatment.
If your child is on any medication which has to be administered whilst attending the nursery, you must complete a medicine form giving instructions on times and dosage for each course. Written consent must also be given for the application of creams and lotions.
For the health and welfare of all children who come to the nursery we request that you do not bring your child into nursery if they are ill or have an infectious disease. In the event of illness, accident or emergency we will act on your behalf and take such action as we consider appropriate. This may include taking your child from the nursery to seek medical attention. Every effort will be made to contact you immediately.
You are requested to share any concerns you may have with the Nursery Manager, or, if the Manager is absent, the Deputy Manager. Positive links between parents and staff are essential to promote the ongoing positive development of your child. We would appreciate any comments or suggestions that you may have that could be left (anonymously if preferred) in the Suggestion Box; this will enable us to ensure the best possible service for you and your child.
We concentrate on encouraging good behaviour. We reward positive behaviour rather than concentrating on any negative aspects. The use of positive sticker rewards are implemented in all rooms.
You should be aware that the nursery has a responsibility to take reasonable action to ensure the welfare and safety of its children. In cases where the nursery staff have a cause to be concerned that a child in their care may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, staff will follow Fun Foundation’s Child Protection Procedures and inform the Social Services. This may involve a visit to the home by a social worker.
Breakfast, a two-course lunch and a light tea are provided each day, along with snacks. A menu is displayed in the nursery so that you know what your child will be offered to eat. The meals that are provided are healthy and nutritious. We must be informed of any dietary requirements before your child starts attending the nursery.
Staff will endeavour to respect the dietary wishes of your child. These will be recorded on the initial Parent/Key Worker Consultation notes.
