- All of the nurseries and after school clubs have a large selection of toys, equipment and resources - so children can play in a happy and safe environment.
- If any child has sickness or diarrhoea, we ask that they stay away from the setting until the symptoms have stopped for 48 hours.
- Each setting has written policies and procedures which are available for parents and carers to read, at all times.
