Parents info


We are aware that there may be occasions when you cannot pick up your child. If we have not met your nominated person we will need identification prior to the pick up day. This may include a photograph, a description of the person, a password, a letter of permission or a security number.

Staff will not allow a child to be collected by a person whom they do not know. If any one other than the child’s parent or carer will be collecting the child we need to have your permission and the person will need to bring proof of identification.

When entering and leaving the nursery please ensure that the outside doors are securely closed behind you. The back garden gate must also be securely closed behind you when collecting children from the garden.

Please ensure that the stair gates are correctly and safely closed behind you. Parents are requested NOT TO ALLOW ENTRY TO ANYONE as they enter or leave the nursery.

Oral Health

At Rainbow Nursery we are committed to promoting good oral hygiene practices. We generate appropriate conversations around tooth health and ensure children understand the importance of caring for their teeth. We have resources to support understanding and activities that children can take part in that show them how to effectively care for their baby teeth. We have a varied nutritious menu here at nursery and during meal times will talk to children about how eating healthy foods and drinking water/milk can keep their teeth healthy. Poor oral health impacts not just on the individual’s health but also their wellbeing and that of their family. Children who have toothache or who need treatment may have pain, infections and difficulties with eating, sleeping and socialising. They may have to be absent from school and parents may also have to take time off work to take their children to a dentist or to hospital. We know that as parents/ carers oral hygiene is very important to you also, we have attached a website link that may be useful for you to look at in helping to promote oral hygiene at home.
