EARLY LEARNING

The Forehill EYC

About Us

All our staff are fully qualified and experienced in delivering high quality learning in a caring and nurturing setting. In the EYC, each child is assigned to a particular member of staff, who will take responsibility for the child’s progress, assessment and care, both in and out of the nursery.

The safety of the children in the nursery is of paramount importance.  It is expected that a responsible adult brings and collects children from nursery each day.  It is important and indeed helpful to inform a member of staff if there is a change of person collecting your child.  This avoids difficult situations arising when staff do not allow a child to leave with an adult the staff do not know. 

Safety measures have been taken to increase the security of the Early Years Centre. Entrances and Exits will be supervised by members of staff at drop off and collection times. To gain access outwith these times, the buzzer entry system at the main entrance should be used.

We would ask that children are collected promptly at the end of each session.
