What happens if my child is ill?
It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. If your child is poorly and will not be attending their booked session, we ask that you please contact us.
We take advise from Public Health England regarding exclusion periods for specific infections. This is to prevent other children becoming unwell and to promote a speedy recovery.
Drop off and pick up
Please aim to drop your child off on time at the beginning of their booked session, children being late to sessions can be desruptive and can cause some children to become unsettled.
Any changes to session times/days must be requested in writing and agreed with the Manager - When we are busy it is not always possible to accept children at different times from those
requested due to staffing ratios.
Please be prompt when collecting children. We operate a tight schedule and as a legal requirement there must always be 2 staff with each child, if you are late collecting this can cause serious issues for us and can be very unsettling for the child.
Costs will be incurred! If you are late to collect your child. If your child is left uncollected for one hour with no contact Social Services will be contacted.
Please make sure you contact us if you are late and please try and have another family member/trusted adult collect the child with the relevant password.
We play outdoors in all weather conditions. Please ensure your child is dressed appropriatley for the weather, we request that parents provide;
- Wellington boots
- Sun hats
- Winter hats
- Appropriate coats/jackets
If your child is wearing wellington boots to pre-school please ensure that they have shoes in their bag to change in to.
All clothing and footwear should be clearly labelled.
Messy Play Disley
Should parents wish to raise any issues about safeguarding, they can do so by contacting the Disley Under Fives manager, Meesha.
If you would prefer not to discuss safeguarding issues with staff at the setting, parents are advised that they can raise any issues with Disley Primary School.
