End of the day pick up is changing

In our recent parent/carer survey the majority of parents/carers expressed a preference for collecting the children directly from the nursery playroom.  In response to this the end of day pick up is changing. 

From Monday 3 October the children will no longer be collected from their individual group doors, instead all parents/carers will enter through the nursery main doors and collect children from their end of day gather inside the nursery playroom. 

There will be two gathers one for the red and purple group at the left end of the playroom and the Yellow, Blue and Orange groups will gather at the right end of the playroom.  Each adult collecting their child will need to sign their child out and then head to the gather group.  The children will be asked to wait in their group until a member of staff has called their name.  This is a security measure to ensure that each child leaves with their appropriate adult. 

There will be a member of nursery staff on each of the three internal doors who will each be checking to ensure each child is leaving with an adult. 

Once you have collected your child please return to the cloakroom and exit via the nursery main door.  

To try and help us ensure this change is as smooth as possible for all of our children and families, the doors will open at 2.40pm from Monday 3rd October to allow a little more time to collect. 

Please be patient with us while we implement this change.  We will continually re-evaluate the pick-up process, taking your feedback into consideration.

Please pass this on to anyone who may collect your child as there will be no nursery staff at the quiet garden doors for pick up from Monday onwards.

Can you help?
