About Little Clowns Day Nursery
Who Are We?
Little Clowns Nursery was established as a Day Nursery in 1990. We provide full-day education and care for babies and children aged from 3 months to 5 years
We aim to provide a happy, safe, and secure learning environment for all the children in our care by providing a friendly, fun, and stimulating environment-allowing children to develop and reach their full potential
We recognise the importance of these Early years and want all the children in our care to thrive and be happy, achieving important learning milestones as well as self-confidence, independence, and social skills
Starting and Settling In
We recognise that starting at a new setting can be emotional for both children and parents, this is why we suggest children attend a couple of settling in visits prior to their first full session, this allows for children to feel settled, reassure parents and making the transition as smooth as possible for all involved
A home visit will also take place, this gives you as a parent time to meet with your child’s key person, discuss any questions you may have, and provide reassurance that you have made the right decision when choosing Little Clowns as a nursery for your child
Arrival and Collection Times
We require that you adhere to the times you have booked for your child in the contract as the nursery have strict staff/child ratios that we must maintain
We are as flexible as possible and will always endeavour to meet your needs where ratios allow, staying for tea etc but this must always be agreed in advance
Meals and Snacks
At Little Clowns Nursery, we have a four-week lunchtime menu that provides children with a hot nutritious cooked meal and fruit dessert at lunchtime a copy of menus are available on request and on the notice board in each area of the nursery
We also provide a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack of fruit (toast as well in the morning)
Children who stay after 4.30 pm are provided with a tea, again this will be a nutritious snack style meal such as beans on toast, soup, etc.
We provide Water and milk at morning and afternoon snack times and water is on offer throughout the day for children to have when needed. All dietary requirements are catered for
Outings and Visits
The children at little clown’s nursery have the opportunity to explore the community around us by making regular visits to the library, beach, squirrel parks, etc.
When you complete your registration form you are required to sign to give permission for children to participate in these activities which are of course risk assessed before we take each visit out of the nursery
Sickness and Medication
Please inform the nursery as soon as possible if your child is unwell and will not be attending nursery that day
A child cannot attend nursery if they appear to be suffering from an infectious disease or within 48 hours of their last attack of sickness/diarrhoea, this is in order to reduce the risk of affecting other children and staff
Medication can only be given if it is prescribed and written consent is given
If a child requires medication such as Calpol to get through the day then they should not be in the nursery as we are unable to care appropriately for sick children and it is unfair on them and the other children
Children who are prescribed medication such as antibiotics are unable to attend the nursery until they have been on the course for 24 hours in case of reactions and to give them time to work.
Sickness and medication policies can be given on request.
