Children’s Clothing

Parents, please be advised to send your child in easy, manageable clothing for toilet training and going to the toilet. For children who are still on their nappies, please send a required amount of nappies for each day and wet wipes clearly labelled with the child’s name. For all classes we advise a change of clothes to be provided in the child’s school bag in case of any accidents! Due to safety reasons, parents are requested not to send their children in flip flop footwear.

Also, although we provide aprons for craft and painting time, paint does seem to find a way around these protective covers.

 

Snack Time

The children will have a mid-morning snack at 10am and another time not later that 11:50am. Parents are requested to provide a labelled cool bag or box containing a healthy snack such as a small sandwich, fruit, yogurt, crisps and biscuits. Please do not send glass bottles, fizzy drinks, chocolate, sweets, peanuts and junk food i.e chicken nuggets, burgers etc. At Bright Beginnings Nursery we encourage healthy eating habits.

 

Fees

Nursery tuition fees are due on the first day of each term. Please note that fees are non-refundable and no adjustments will be made to nursery fees due to sickness, holiday or early departures. If paying by cheque, please be informed post-dated cheques are non-returnable once a receipt has been issued and the cheque(s) is given as a fee payment. 

 

Photographs

From time to time photographs of the children are taken for parties, curriculum purposes or advertising that will be posted on our facebook account (Zarah BrightMuscat). If you do not wish your child to be photographed, please advise the office.

 

School Reports

Your child’s development is our number one priority. To help us and you monitor your child’s progress, termly  Nursery report will be given to all parents at the end of the final term.

 

Extended Hours Service

Bright Beginnings Nursery have introduced an extended hours programme. This runs from 8:00 am until 2:30 pm. There is an extra fee for this service. Please contact the office for more details.

 

Nursery Outings

At the end of each term, we will take our higher class children on a trip to a local area of interest. Trips will also depend upon the lesson plan of their teacher in-charged.  All trips are arranged with the permission of the parents and a small fee is charged for bus rental.

 

Health and Safety

In the nursery, we have cots and sleeping areas available for children so they can nap and rest comfortably. On site we have paediatric first aid trained staff and liaise with clinics in the area should an emergency arise.
