Drop Off and Collection Procedures

When dropping off and collecting your child:

  • Please hold your child’s hand when approaching Nursery and beware of cars.
  • Please bring your child into Nursery through the Main Entrance (which will be opened at the start of the session time, not before) and hand them over to their Key Worker in the classroom.
  • Please let us know in advance if someone other than a parent/carer is collecting your child.  The person MUST be over 16 years of age.  They should be named on your child's "Getting to Know You" form.
  • We have a password system in Nursery to safeguard the children, so please ensure that the person collecting knows the password.
  • If you forget your password, please ask at the Office. We cannot confirm passwords over the telephone.


Dogs are not permitted anywhere on school grounds.
