Our policy statements are held in a file at the Pre-School and are available for parents to see at any time.
All policies are available to see in at Pre-School in the Policy Folder and some are here to see online.
Payment Policy – Cholsey Pre-School operates a payment policy. Accounts must be settled within 15 days of receipt of invoice if your child’s place is to be secured. Cheques should be made payable to “Cholsey Pre-school” and put in the fees box just inside the Pre-School door. Please include the invoice slip with your cheque.
Please do not hesitate to contact the fees’ secretary if you have problems paying your invoice. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence. Each child’s attendance in the group is conditional upon continued payment of any necessary fees. In the case of prolonged absence from pre-school, parents should consult the committee about fee payment. The pre-school requires one month’s notice in writing if a child no longer needs one or all its sessions, other than if starting school.
Safeguarding children- As an OFSTED registered day care provider we are legally required to report all cases of actual or suspected abuse of any child in our care. If you have any safeguarding concerns you can contact the LCSS on 0345 2412608.
Prevent Duty and British Values
Accident book – due to regulations set out by social services and the Pre-School learning alliance, we are required to keep an “accident book”. If your child has an accident or is injured whilst at Pre-School, an entry will be made in this book and you will be asked to counter-sign it (NOTE: There is always at least one member of staff present who is trained in first aid).
Administering Medicine – Should your child require medication whilst at Pre-School please talk to the Manager. If your child requires regular medication such as an inhaler please make sure it comes in the box it was prescribed to you in by the G.P.
Illness – If your child is unwell, please keep him/her at home until they are able to join in all activities. If your child develops an infectious illness (chicken pox, measles etc.), please inform a member of staff so other parents can be informed. If your child has sickness/diarrhoea they must be kept off for 48 hours from the time they were last poorly.
Information – We are duty bound to share information with third parties if we are concerned. This may be without your consent if it is a matter of safeguarding a child or vulnerable adult.
Non-Smoking zone– please remember that the entire school grounds are a non-smoking area, this includes e-cigarettes.
Mobile Phones- We would like to request that you do not use your mobile phone on the school grounds and while visiting the classroom you will be asked to kept your phone in a secure place.
