We have a carefully formulated set of policies and procedures that are central to ensuring the welfare of our children, staff and parents. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, these policies are constantly evolving and are regularly reviewed and revised to reflect the quality of our provision, our nursery's individual needs and ethos as well as meeting legal requirements. All our policies meet the requirements set out in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage in England. Below you can view a fully comprehensive list of all our policies and procedures.

We work in close partnership with our parents and carers to formulate our policies and are always keen to hear your views. Please click the link below to get in touch and share your views.
