OPENING TIMES

Jack & Jill Pre-school is open term time, Monday to Friday between 09:00-12:00 unless advised otherwise.

WHAT TO BRING

At each session, your child should have a named bag containing a change of clothes and nappies etc, if required. During hot weather, for outdoor play, please apply sun cream before pre-school and provide your child with a hat to wear. We have water and milk available for all children throughout the session. There is no need to provide a drink for your child (unless it’s a special requirement).

SETTLING YOUR CHILD

We are aware that each child is different and some settle more easily than others. You are welcome to stay with your child during their first few sessions. Please discuss any concerns with a member of the team to create a strategy that will work for your child.

COLLECTING YOUR CHILD

If any other person is collecting your child, please ensure that a member of staff is informed (preferably in writing) when you drop off your child in the morning.

PRE-START VISIT

If you would like to attend a session prior to your child starting, to see how the pre-school sessions are structured and what activities your child will be participating in, please let us know and we will arrange a suitable time for you to visit.

ILLNESS AND ABSENCES

If your child is suffering from sickness/diarrhea, they must not attend pre-school until they have been without symptoms for at least 48 hours. If your child contracts an infectious disease (eg measles, chicken pox, German measles) they will have to be kept at home for the specified period of time and we should be informed immediately. Please read the noticeboard for information on insurance details and infectious diseases.

WITHDRAWING YOUR CHILD

If you wish to permanently withdraw your child from the pre-school we ask that you notify us in writing at least six weeks prior to your child’s last day.

KEY PERSON

Your child will be allocated a key person. This helps us provide for your child’s individual needs. If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s requirements at pre-school your key person is there to help. The name of your child’s key person can be found on the noticeboard at the hall.

POLICY FOLDER

When your child starts at the pre-school, we ask that you familiarise yourself with the policy file which is kept on site, at the Delmar Morgan Centre. Please speak to any of the team should you have any questions. Our policies are also available by clicking here.

COMMITTEE

All parents are welcome to get involved in the pre-school by joining the committee and helping with fund raising activities. Help with activities like open days, the Copthorne Carnival and Christmas fundraising are always welcome! Click here.

SNACK TIME AND SUPPLIES

Jack & Jill Pre-school is a charity and a ‘not for profit’ group. We always welcome fresh fruit and healthy snacks for the children during the morning. We also need kitchen roll and tissues, especially during the cold season.
