For Parents

Parents, we at Merry Mornings recognise that you are the primary carers of your children. Our aim is to support you in encouraging your child/children to develop at their own pace. You are welcome to visit the playschool whenever you so wish. There is an opportunity each day to talk to staff about any concerns. We would encourage you to come into the playroom to see your child/children’s work on display and to take home their own work stored in the craft basket in the entrance hall.

We ask you to take note of the following procedures:-

Please sign in your child on arrival and departure. Only the people you have designated can collect your child.

Any changes to the collection rota must be entered on your child’s registration form. A specific time must be arranged to collect your child if not being collected at twelve to ensure that two members of staff remain with the child.

Your children must disinfect their hands daily before entering the playroom to help stop the spread of infection.

Your children must bring a packed lunch each day with enough food for 2 breaks. Children must have access to two food breaks in a session. We suggest that the main snack be a healthy sandwich or wrap, a drink and a piece of fruit for the second snack. Drinks should be in a twist topped flask with enough liquid for several drinks.

Please do NOT include the following:- Packets of sweets, any  chocolate food, peanuts, popcorn and kiwis because of food allergies and  allergies to nuts and traces of nuts.

Children should have a change of shoes for indoor wear e.g. slippers, sandals. N.B. no crocs or open toed sandals to be worn as outdoor play footwear, they can cause broken ankles etc.

We provide extra curricula activities:- Baking, gardening, and a story teller.( no charge ) We go on an annual outing which costs approx. ten euros per child.
