Welcome to Monkey Puzzle West Acton
Notices and Reminders:
Drop off/Pick up in line with our Safeguarding Policy, we kindly ask that UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you hold the foyer door open for anybody allowing them access into the main body of the nursery. We know that this can seem a little over the top when you recognise the person behind you but it is something that we MUST INSIST on. Many thanks for your understanding with this matter.
Medication Please advise a member of staff if your child is on any medication. You do not need to send any pain relief (Calpol or equivalent) into nursery. We have our own supply which is kept away from children at all times.
Photographs We would like to update Famly Sign in with photographs of adults that collect your child from nursery to aid our safeguarding practice. Therefore, please can we ask that you send a photo of anyone (including yourself) who picks or may pick your child up from nursery to firstname.lastname@example.org Please ensure that it is just a clear, head shot only.
Teeth Brushing Can all Toddler and Pre School Children remember to bring a toothbrush to nursery that can be kept here. We would like to implement children brushing their teeth after lunch as apart of our health living campaign.
