Whilst we understand that a busy parent may be running a few minutes late, please try to be prompt when collecting your child. Late collections cause all sorts of problems for staff and some children may become distressed if not collected on time. We run as an independent business, separate from the school and are only registered and insured to care from 9:00am till 3:00pm (or 8.45 (early birds) — 3.15 (late birds) if booked in).
There is a late collection charge of £6.50 for every 10 minutes.
At 11:30 or 12:30 please leave the school grounds directly after dropping off your child to enable staff to lock the gate to ensure the security of all children.
If you know that you are going to be late please ring preschool on 07890 906250 or via school on 01270 841302
