Feeding and Clothing

All meals are provided for your child. All our food is cooked fresh in-house and will be healthy and nutritious. Our weekly menus are displayed for parents to view. We provide sheets and blankets for nap time. Parents are asked to please provide nappies, cream and wipes when needed. These will be labelled and stored on your child’s shelf.

Children should be sent in each day in comfortable clothes which you and they will not worry about spoiling if they are involved in messy activities. Clothes which they can manage themselves will help them to be independent when using the toilet.

Please provide spare clothes.



A daily report will be provided to parents by staff showing food intake, nappies and naps taken. A member of staff will always be available to discuss your child’s day with you.


Settling In

Starting creche is a big step for both parents and child. We suggest you start with short visit a fews weks before your child is due to start to get them used of their new surroundings and new carer. We are very flexible and always on hand for advice.


Collection of Children

Children may only be collected by the person(s) named on the registration form. If this should change, a phone call will be required before the child will be allowed leave.



It is very important that we are notified of any change to the child’s contact number or address in case of emergency.
