If the closure exceeds 3 days in duration (excluding any days when the day care would otherwise be closed), we will credit you with an amount that represents the number of days the nursery is closed in excess of 3 days.

6.3 If you have any concerns regarding the services we provide, please discuss these with your child´s keyworker. If concerns have not been resolved to your satisfaction please contact the Day Care Manager. Customer satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.

6.4 We carry a wide range of toys and equipment in our day care. Unless we specifically request otherwise your child should not bring any of their own toys to the day care. If they do bring toys with them, we accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to those toys.

6.5 From time to time we may have photographs taken of the children who attend our day care. These photographs may be used for promotional purposes. If you do not wish your child to be included in these photographs, then you should write to the Day Care Manager.

6.6 As the number of children with nut allergies is increasing, with the support of parents we aim to keep the facility NUT FREE. Parents are requested not to send food or empty packaging into the facility. Parents are also requested not to use creams, sun creams, oils etc on their child that may contain nut oil, e.g. arachis, as this may have severe consequences to another child or member of staff.

If you have any questions regarding any of the above please do not hesitate to contact us.
