If a child is absent from nursery for any reason e.g. due to sickness or family
holiday childcare fees will still apply. The Nursery is only open during term
time. you will not be charged when we are closed for the holidays.

Educational Visits
During the school year children in the Nursery will have the opportunity
to access educational visits. For some trips a voluntary contribution is
requested from Parents/Carers to support the coach hire and entrance

No child will be treated differently according to whether or not their
parents have made any contribution in response to the request

The information regarding the voluntary contributions is given on induction
to the nursery in the “All About Me” booklet and other reminders will be
sent throughout the year. If the activity cannot be funded without voluntary
contribution, the Governing Body or Head teacher will make this clear to
parents at the outset. We aim to help parents understand that we cannot
subsidise the cost of school outings and special events, such as visits to the
zoo or theatre groups. If we do not receive enough voluntary contributions
towards the cost we will have to terminate the outing or event.

The School Minibus will transport children to venues such as Museum local
landmarks, local parks, Garden Centres and other places of interest. These
trips are generally provided free of charge.
