We want your child to feel happy and safe with us and we want you to feel happy leaving your child with us. The setting’s policies help us to make sure that the service provided is of high quality.

The staff and parents’ committee work together to adopt the policies and they all have the opportunity to take part in their annual review.

Our policies are available to download below.  They are in a PDF format. Adobe Reader is available for free and allows you to view pdf’s.

Please note that some of these policies are currently under review and a new version will be uploaded as soon as the policies have been signed off by the Committee of Trustees.
