Change in Circumstances

Please inform us of any change of address or telephone numbers.  We use these numbers to contact you if your child becomes poorly or has an accident at nursery, therefore it is very important that we always have the correct numbers.

To help us work in partnership with you we ask that you inform us if there are any major changes which happen in your child’s life during the time they are at nursery.  This helps us to support your child through these events.
