· Please be reminded, any holidays requests require 4 weeks’ notice in order to not be charged, this can be via email (kg@qe.org) or on the paper holiday form request sheets.

· Collection Times – Please ensure that if your child is booked in for a morning session, they are collected no later than 12.45pm. For afternoon sessions or full day sessions, your child must be collected no later than 6.00pm as this is the time Kindergarten closes and staff have personal commitments they need to get to. If you are running late at the end of the day, please ensure you contact Kindergarten as soon as possible. If the collection is after 6.05pm, the staff will arrange to meet you at the Car Park bus shelter. Unfortunately, we will not be able to give you a full handover of your child’s day in these circumstances. There is a fee of £5 is chargeable beyond these times for late pickups this will increase per 15 minutes of lateness

· Please store all pushchairs/scooters/bikes in the ‘Buggy Park’ located under the slides.

· Name labelling– We have had lots of items go missing recently, it is therefore essential that we ask that ALL children’s bags, coats, items of clothing and all personal belongings are labelled with your child’s name.  If your child loses anything at Kindergarten, please let a member of staff know and we will try and find it or we can ask other parents if it has gone home with the wrong child.

· Lost Property – This can be found in the green tub in the corridor, unclaimed items will be binned/sent to charity at the end of each half term!

· Signing in and out – Please ensure you sign your child in and out of Kindergarten on arrival and collection each day; the signing in sheet is located on the table as you enter the dining room.
