Helpful Information 

Buggy Area

Our nursery has a buggy area, where you can leave your push chair and your child's scooter during the day. All buggies and scooters should be labelled to avoid confusion. Little Rosie’s cannot accept any responsibility for items left in the buggy area at the end of the nursery day.


Potty Training

Potty training usually happens between the ages of 2 and 3 years old, however age varies for each individual child. Most children will adapt quite quickly and it is very common for them to copy other children at nursery. Please talk to your child’s key person when you are thinking of beginning potty training and ask for their assessment of your child. Often the key person will speak to you when they feel your child is showing the signs to start potty training. It is important to make a plan with your child’s key person so that the same approach happens at nursery and at home, otherwise it can be very confusing for your child. It is therefore imperative that it is also the right time at home. Little Rosie’s provides child-friendly bathrooms are fitted with child-size seats. Please remember to bring plenty of underwear, changes of clothes and shoes in case of accidents. We suggest that children wear comfortable clothes and avoid dungarees (overalls) which can be tricky for them.


Toys & Little Treasures

Please do not encourage your child to bring in any toys from home. These are liable to get lost or to cause a disagreement between friends. If toys are brought from home, they will be sent home with the parent or put in a drawer until home time. We have a strict policy of no toy weapons inside the nursery; these include toy water pistols and any other toy that promotes violence. Please can parents return any Little Rosie’s 'treasures' that may have made their way home. These are sometimes vital pieces and can make a game or puzzle incomplete.


Children's Clothing

Throughout the day, the children will take part in various activities, which may include messy play, creative arts and baking. Although the children wear aprons, from time-to-time their clothes may become marked therefore we would advise you not to put them in smart clothing. Little Rosie’s cannot be held responsible for any items that the child brings to school or clothing that goes missing.



If your child is celebrating their birthday you may bring a cake (must be nut-free and healthy option preferred). At circle time we will sing 'Happy Birthday' and candles will be lit. In view of the number of children who suffer from allergies, nuts and peanut butter are absolutely not allowed in the nursery and should not be used under any circumstances. Vigilance is to be exercised with any food coming into the nursery. Unless it is stated that the product is 'nut free', it will NOT be allowed in the nursery.
