Here at Ilminster Avenue Nursery School, we believe in the benefits of a quality early education. Coming to Nursery for all of your funded sessions, helps your child to receive the full benefit.
We understand that young children can pick up lots of coughs and colds so please ring us if your child is unable to attend a session due to illness.
As part of our approach to Safeguarding, it is important that we know where the children are if they are not attending Nursery. One of our lovely office team will give you a quick call just to check that all is well with you and your family.
if your child is struggling to come into Nursery, someone from your child’s class team will be able to support you with ideas on how to help them. Lucy Hobbs, our family Link Worker, is also available for a chat if you have any worries or concerns about your child’s attendance.

Please can you do your very best to be on time especially when picking up your child; children can get very anxious if everyone else has been collected but not them. It is also helpful to collect on time so that you have the opportunity to talk to your child’s key person about their day.

If you do need to collect your child early, inform the class teacher or the Office to arrange a time. While we appreciate that some children need to be dropped off later or picked up early due to siblings being at other schools. It can be unsettling for the child and can be quite disruptive to the class.
