What to Bring
& What to Leave at Home
Most youngsters enjoy eating a snack
during their stay at the childminding centre.
We encourage you to bring a nutritious snack
and a drink each time your child visit. Due to
the risks associated with allergies to nuts,
please do not bring any nuts or nut products
into the room. Please keep us informed of
any changes that occur in your child’s
dietary needs.
Childminding is a weapons-free zone. War toys
are not allowed. We also encourage you to leave
your child’s favourite toys at home unless he/she
is willing to share them with the other children.
To eliminate any confusion, please label lunch
boxes and other personal items that arrive with
your child.
Health & Safety
The front door of childminding is secured by a
locking system. In order to ensure the safety of all
children, please check that only your child leaves
with you! Please ensure the door lock is secure
when entering and exiting the room.
Help us provide the highest possible quality care
for your child by ensuring that staff are continually
updated on information regarding allergies, health
care or behavioral challenges.
When your child is ill, please do not bring him or
her to the childminding centre. We are equipped to
care for well children only.
