The nursery is opened from 7.30 am - 6.00 pm weekdays (except bank holidays). We cater for children aged 0 - 4 years in our purpose built nursery setting.

Security & Confidentialty

Your children are in our care and we therefore reserve the right to question the identity of anyone we do not recognise picking up your child. The people you authorise to collect your child will have been nominated by you on the application form. Please notify, in writing, any additions and introduce them to reception and office staff.

For fire policy purposes, we need to know who is in each part of setting at any one time.  This is why we insist that parents do not move between Nursery & Mini Montys/school via the dance studio. Children and parents must enter each building separately though the main designated entrance.

Irrespective of the class or activity your child is involved in, security is of the utmost importance.  PLEASE ensure you close the door securely behind you when entering or exiting the setting. Also, when collecting your child from an after school activity/nursery you must inform the club leader they are leaving the premises.

There are CCTV positioned outside the setting, these are for the security of the children within the nursery and school.

Confidentiality

A code of confidentiality exists at Pocklington Montessori Nursery. All staff members understand that breaking confidentiality is a disciplinary offence. Your child’s file, containing reports, records, medical information, etc., is kept in a secure office and locked outside of office hours. Any confidences shared with members of staff are strictly kept within school boundaries, unless permission is granted by parents/guardians to seek expert outside advice.
