Welcome Pack & Developmental Reports

Parents/carers of children in my setting all receive a comprehensive Welcome Pack upon joining the setting. This includes all my current childcare policies, procedures, guidelines and permission slips, etc. I now provide developmental reports throughout the year digitally on Kinderly.

You are requested to supply your own child's formula/breast milk, nappies, wet-wipes, nappy sacks, sun lotion and prescription medicines (only prescribed medication can be administered). Please do not send your child in "best clothes" due to messy play, although aprons are provided accidents can happen.
All Groovie Tots food is healthy & freshly prepared.
You are requested to provide complete details of any specific dietary requirements/allergies upon registering your child for childminding services at Groovie Tots. You must inform me of any changes to your childs dietary requirements/medical needs upon bringing your child to Groovie Tots.

Please see my Covid-19 page for precautions put in to place that supersede usual setting requirements and practices.
