Starting Nursery



Your Child will need:

  • A set of spare clothes (if your child gets wet or dirty when playing).
  • Nappies / wipes etc if applicable.
  • Coat & indoor footwear-slippers / pumps.
  • Medication if required.
  • All of the above Clearly labelled with your child’s name.
  • In summer months please ensure your child arrives with sun screen applied.



Mealtimes / Breaks

The Park Nursery will provide each child with a drink and snack mid-morning and mid-afternoon and whilst doing this

we will be constantly promoting a healthy and fun way to enjoy food.



Breakfast for babies will be given between 8 – 8.45am.


Lunch will be 12-1pm

You need to provide a cold packed lunch and drink in a named container. This will be refrigerated. Please also bring toothbrush and toothpaste – this is to support the ‘Stop The Rot’ campaign to prevent tooth decay.


This will be at 4.00pm.

For those children attending at this time

– a light, healthy snack will be provided.


Babies should bring all their food and drinks, in named bottles, cups etc. (all jars must be sealed).




Only life saving medicines will be admitted – i.e. Inhalers / Epi Pens.

Short course medicine may be admitted – i.e. Amoxicillin.


All medicines will be stored correctly and they will need to be labelled with the child’s name and dosage.




Birthdays are a special time for all children and will make your child’s birthday memorable. We will provide a cake / biscuits to share with their friends at nursery.




Please let staff know as soon as possible if your child is unwell and not attending nursery.

Please DO NOT send your child back to nursery until clear for 48 hours after suffering sickness / diarrhoea.


Please think before sending your child to nursery if you think they are unwell. Not only is it unfair to them, it also puts the other children and staff at risk of infection.

Should a child become sick or have an accident at nursery, every effort will be made to contact parents / authorised adult before taking further actions.
