It is important that the staff are informed who is to collect your child from the Club. Please let staff know if someone different is to collect your child at any time by ringing playcare on 0121 464 3429 after 3.10pm, or the Main School Office on 0121 675 2800 before 3.10pm.
If your child suffers with asthma or is taking any medication then you are responsible for ensuring that your child has a separate inhaler and/or a separate supply of any medication that they may require for Playcare. All members of playcare staff are qualified in first aid.
Parents must come into the Club and report to the staff to sign their children out. This also gives staff the opportunity to discuss any issues with you or pass on any messages from your child’s class teacher.
