Nursery School


Children should be at Nursery School everyday unless they are poorly. Please ring us if they are unable to come for any reason.


Coming to nursery every day really matters. Children learn and develop most, from birth to five years old they do not learn so much, so quickly again for the rest of their lives.

It is really important for children to come to nursery every day, unless they are sick.

Children who attend everyday are happier. They make more progress in their learning and make more friends.


If children are not well they are better off at home, whatever they say!  Please do not bring them to Nursery if you have had to give them Calpol (or a similar medicine) in the morning. If you are not sure, check with the Nursery staff.

Please telephone us on 01488 682628 before 9.00am and leave a message on the absence line (option 1) if your child is going to be absent.


Childhood infectious diseases

There are lots of common infectious diseases which your children will invariably have at some time, perhaps whilst they are at Nursery.  Please let us know as soon as you suspect an infection, or have a diagnosis, so that we can inform other parents. 


Please see the exclusion period for common childhood illnesses below which will advise you how long to keep your child at home.
