Our Policies

Policies and Documentation

Printed copies of our policies and procedures are freely accessible at the nursery for parents to read at any time. Parents can contact the Admissions Secretary (admissions@smithschildren.co.uk) to request copies to take home and read.
We keep parents informed about changes to our practice and legislation. Some policies also include permissions that parents will be provided with to take home and sign at the first settling in-session, this forms part of our induction process.
