The layout of our policies and procedures is changing this academic year. The content of the policies is mostly the same, except:

  • we have replaced our plug inserts with plug covers

  • we have completed allergen training, added allergen details to our menus, and use a separate toaster for gluten-free food

  • we now have nursery mobiles which must be used on walks instead of personal phones

  • no bleach is used in the setting

  • we will only administer emergency paracetamol to under 2s

Please speak with Vicki (nursery manager), Radka (deputy manager) or Carly (third in charge) if you have any questions. Thank you!
