All fees are collected 1 month in advance. Payment can be made by direct debit, standing order childcare vouchers, tax free childcare, card payments and online banking. We are also a provider of the Free Childcare Offer for Wales for children aged 3-4 years.
Please note that fees are still payable in the event that your child does not attend nursery due to illness, holidays or adverse weather. (Please refer to the full terms and conditions which can be found on the Contract and Registration Form).
All meals are provided for the children in our care along with drinks which are readily available throughout the day and during meal times.
We ask that parents/carers provide babies with enough of their child’s formula milk to last for the whole session, each time their child attends nursery.
For children who are not toilet trained, parents/carers are required to supply nappies, wet wipes and nappy cream, each time their child attends nursery.
We encourage outdoor learning throughout the year and aim to take the children outdoors in all weathers to explore, learn and play. We ask that parents/carers provide their child with a sun hat and sun cream (minimum of factor 50) to be used in warm weather. We cannot allow children outside on summer days unless they have sufficent protection from the sun.
Waterproof clothing and wellington boots are to be provided during wet weather for outdoor play and gardening activities (Toddler and Preschool Room only). A warm coat along with a hat, scarf and gloves should be provided during the colder months.
To allow us to provide written feedback and pass messages successfully between home and nursery all children must be provided with a daily diary/notebook.
Your childs Keyworker will complete the diary each time your child attends nursery. This will include information about mealtimes, sleep times and activities they have taken part in along with any details about their day.
Another way we share information between home and nursery is through our online SeeSaw App. Each child has a SeeSaw account, where staff members post pictures and videos of your childs day, along with individual messages to parents/carers. Parents/carers can make the choice to share this account with other family members who can also view what is being posted by the nursery staff.
Playworks Early Days Nursery has a Facebook page where we regularly post about future events and share other important information.
Newsletters are produced throughout the year and are shared with parents/carers via your childs SeeSaw account. Papercopies of the newsletters are also availabe in the Reception area of the nursery.
Medication and Communicable Diseases Policy
Children will not be admitted in to the nursery if they are suffering from illness.
This is to safeguard cross infection between the ill/ infected child and all other children and staff at the nursery.
Children suffering from illnesses such as Chicken Pox, Conjunctivitis etc must observe the exclusion period as detailed in our Policies and Procedures. Our Policies and Procedures file can be found in the Reception area of the nursery. Alternatively you can request a copy of our policies from the Nursery Manager.
The Nursery Management Team must be confident that children are fully recovered and are fit and well before being admitted back into the nursery.
In the event of a child becoming unwell during their session at the nursery, every effort will be made to contact the parent/carer to request that they collect the child or discuss the action needed immediately.
