    Late collection of a child

    Whilst we understand that things happen and parents can be delayed, our policy for late collection is available for all parents to read in our policies and procedures (which is kept on the table in the hall entrance) and depending on the circumstances, we reserve the right to charge parents for the additional time worked by our staff.
    We have a late collection of a child, policy which you find in our policies and procedures.

    Ofsted Comments

    "Children are confident, happy and they behave very well."


    "Staff have a good understanding of how children learn and they know children very well. They provide a broad range of activities and experiences, which supports children to make good progress across all areas of learning."


    "There are strong links with the local community."


    "Staff organise the environment particularly well to help children to be as independent as possible in leading their own play and learning."
