  • Discipline Policy
  • Physical punishment of any description is strictly prohibited.

  •  Any unacceptable behaviour is discussed with the child at the time in a language he/she can understand. On occasion the ‘Time Out’ is used to reduce a tense situation. A consistent method of dealing with each child is arrived at by discussions between the Principal and  parent.

  • The staff is expected to encourage socially acceptable behaviour of children by praise and practice.

  • The method of discipline applied depends on the age and stage of development of the child and he/she is always told why his/her behaviour is unacceptable.

Nursery property Policy

  • Children found intentionally damaging anything in the nursery, be it chairs, toys, books etc. will be given a warning and the parents informed of the behaviour.
  • If the matter persists, parents are responsible for paying the cost of repairing or replacing the damaged item.

Equal Opportunities Policy

  • In our nursery we take special care to treat every child as an individual by emphasising the value of cultural diversity through learning about different festivals and occasions.
  • We are careful to avoid negative statements that may lower the child's self-esteem. 
  • We respect dietary restrictions and religious injunctions and practices.

  • We provide the children with filtered water and yoghurt during the meal times. A small fee is charged at the end of each month depending on your child's yoghurt consumption.
  • Children should have enough food packed for the two meal times. Breakfast is served following assembly and the second meal time is later in the afternoon.
  • Parents will be advised on their children’s dietary habits on occasion. We especially follow up with parents of fussy eaters and guide both parent and child until the child's eating habits improve.

Parents as Partners Policy

  • We value a close relationship with our parents and understand that good communication between us and them is essential for a child's healthy development.

  • Our aim is to support and enhance your children's development.

  • Before the child starts at the nursery the parents and the child will be invited to a couple of "settling in" periods. During this time, the parents will talk to the child's caregiver and any special needs, health problems etc. will be discussed.

  • Parents will be given newsletters on a regular basis and be kept up to date with all matters.

  • A notice board is also available for general information.

  • Please remember to check your emails on a regular basis for photos and interesting sites we may come across.
