Attendance at Nursery

Research shows that children with high attendance in Nursery start primary school with better learning outcomes and high levels of school readiness.  

Encouraging regular attendance provides structure and simple routines that help children’s development.

Bring your child to Nursery on time every day. Good attendance and punctuality establishes good habits from the start. Children settle more quickly into new settings and routines.

If your child has an episode of sickness or diarrhoea do not bring your child to Nursery for 48 hours after the last episode. This is to ensure the health and safety of all the children. Attendance is monitored. Inform reception if your child is going to be absent.
