Please note that no refunds are given for absences (including absences due to illness, holidays, etc).


The nursery is closed for approximately 1 week between Christmas and New Year and we are also closed on bank / public holidays. Any “paid” sessions on the days we are closed will not be charged for. Please note that we do not offer any additional holiday allowance and any sessions missed due to holidays will be charged at your normal rate. Please notify us at least 4 weeks in advance of your holiday plans.

Clothes and sundries

  • Please provide a spare set of clothes (clearly labelled in a bag or rucksack).
  • A coat and a pair of wellies are needed during the winter months and a sun hat is needed during the summer months. We also recommend that your child has waterproofs (top and bottoms) as we use our outdoor area come rain or shine.
  • From April to September parents MUST apply sun cream before their child comes into the setting. Staff will re-apply a sensitive skin, high factor sun cream to all children on a regular basis on sunny days. This is included in your fees. If your child is allergic to sun-cream, please contact us to discuss.
  • Please provide nappies, wet wipes and creams in a clearly named bag. If these are not supplied, we may charge £2 per session for the days when nappies etc are not provided.
  • Art aprons are provided.

Snacks and meals

  • The children are provided with milk or water and a healthy snack during each session. This is included in your fees / consumables charge.
  • Optional hot lunches are available at a cost of £3.95 per day for a 2-course freshly-cooked hot lunch.
  • Children should bring their own packed lunch if they do not require hot lunches. Packed lunches should be healthy and nutritious and must not include sweets, nuts or sugary or fizzy drinks.
  • Please note that the nursery is a NUT FREE environment so please do not give your child any products with nuts.

Other essential info

  • Invoices, forms, newsletters, etc will be sent via email or via the Famly app. Please ensure that we have an up-to-date email address for you.
  • Please inform us of any allergies, health issues and any other issues (such as emotional or family issues) which may have an effect on your child.
  • Records are kept of your child’s progress, which parents/carers may see on request.
  • We will occasionally have trainees working with us from the Bournemouth College or other institutions for their work experience or as part of Child Care courses. This is of great benefit to the students (and to our children) and hope you will support us in continuing this.
  • Jack and Jill Day Nursery will take photographs of the children to support their records and for occasional use on the website, Facebook, brochure, etc. If you do not wish your child photograph to be taken please indicate this on the registration form.
  • There is off-road parking for drop off / collection. Please park considerately. Max 15 minutes!

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Jack and Jill is usually able to provide individual help for children with Special Educational Needs. Our staff will work alongside other professionals to provide a suitable learning environment and educational plan for each child. If you would like to discuss this further please ask to speak to our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (Sally Jameson).
