Do you have any questions or suggestions you would like to put forward to the nursery?
Do you have any queries re this questionnaire?
If so, please write in the space below.

“Please improve the time keeping of the children going in and coming out of the nursery”
“Please open on a Friday and help a mummy and child, please!”
“Photos put onto website without parent’s consent”
We have taken this comment with immediate response with sending out the new updated registration form. This contains the section on giving consent to photos being put on the nurseries website.
“I think a parents evening event would be great”
“A higher fence at the back to improve security”
When we were lucky enough in having our outside space increased in size. We followed the legal height requirements for this to be put into place. It also had to be passed through The Pavilion, Stimpson Piece local council.
“It would be nice to know what the children do during the day so I can see – maybe in a diary”

“An email newsletter would be easier than a website or private facebook group to prompt looking at info.”
“It would be good to have some kind of home link book for parents to have two way communication”
“A purpose built building would feel safer as access would be restricted/controlled for nursery use only”
“I am pleased that the name blocks have been moved inside the nursery door as I did not feel comfortable with the children’s names being outside the nursery as it is a public area.”
“It would be nice to have a nursery friends committee for parents to get involved with fundraising”
“Show & tell themes – such as bring in something coloured RED”
“A Great nursery!”
“Love the nursery! My little boy is new and he really enjoys it, thank you!”
