Useful Information on starting at Chevening Nursery
What your child should wear:
Your child should wear clothes that are easily removed for them to go to the toilet, are comfortable and which you do not mind getting spoilt in the event of an accident. Chevening School Nursery T-Shirts and sweatshirts are available to buy from the nursery. Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name. No jewellery should be worn for safety reasons. If your child has pierced ears, we recommend your child wear small studs or sleepers. Please also bring in a bag which should contain a spare change of clothes and for those children still in nappies, spare nappies, wipes and nappy sacks. Shoe bags are also available to buy from the nursery. Warm and waterproof clothing and footwear are essential for our Forest School activities.
Accidents & Illness:
Please be aware that there is no sick room at the nursery and in a small environment poorly children may pass their illness quickly to others. If your child is unwell, please keep him/her at home and telephone to notify the Nursery before 8.45am.
Bringing and collecting your child:
We welcome children into the nursery from 9:00a.m. Children leaving at lunchtime should be collected no later that 12 noon to allow staff to prepare for the afternoon session.
Break and lunchtimes:
For break we offer the children milk and water to drink and a variety of healthy foods including crackers, breadsticks or fruit and vegetables to eat. Sometimes the children may eat something that they have prepared during the session, or food linked to our topic, such as noodles at Chinese New Year. Occasionally they have a treat for a special celebration such as when a birthday cake is brought in to share. Please ensure that we are informed of any dietary requirements in writing.
