Here are some key reminders:

Our Vision

“To provide enriching experiences and create lasting memories”

Nipperbout operates with a ‘trauma aware’ pedagogy. Staff are trained to acknowledge feelings and listen to children. Our aim is to reduce the anxiety around attending our settings and to support children and parents to feel welcome and safe.

Communication booklet

Every child has a Communication Booklet to record day to day information between parents / children / Purple People. These are given to parents to take home at the end of the event. If you want to be sure your child's key worker knows about something, record it in the booklet. Please ask to see the booklet should staff forget to show it to you at the end of each day.

Under 8s booklets include the EYFS forms and baby / toddler needs forms and have a daily record of nappy changes, food eaten and activities enjoyed.

If you have any worries or concerns we are here to help!

Label your belongings

Please make sure all children's items are clearly labelled, particularly baby bags, and remember we cannot be responsible for the loss or damage of valuable items.

Babies and toddlers provisions

Please ensure you provide your baby or toddler with nappies, spare pants, bottles and baby food, all clearly labelled with their names.

Toilet training/accidents

It is advisable to provide young children with a spare set of clothes in case of toilet accidents, which may happen as younger children easily become distracted in a new environment.


All medicines (including headache tablets etc) brought into the creche, must have a GP sticker and be locked in the medical box. Medicines must not be left in children's bags as they are a potential danger to other children.

Games consoles and mobile phones

Nipperbout cannot take responsibility for these items in the creche or on outings. We recommend that you leave them in your room. Mobiles may be used by over 8s in the “communication corner” only.

Facebook and social networking

Purple People are not allowed to accept friend requests / followers from anyone who has attended a Nipperbout creche, so please advise your children not to add them.

Photography and video taking

Please remember photographs require the consent of parents and/or the people you are photographing, this includes taking pictures on your phone of our Purple People and other children.

With parental permission, Nipperbout will be taking videos and photographs of the creche for training and marketing purposes. Please notify a Purple Person if you do not want to have photographs or videos taken of yourself or your child.

Weather appropriate clothing

Remember to bring a coat / jacket for your child for when we go on outings. A water proof coat, scarf, gloves and spare shoes might be useful if it is likely to rain or still snowing. Sun screen is useful if your child has delicate skin.

Sweets and fizzy drinks

Sweets and fizzy drinks may not be brought into the creche, or bought on outings. Water is available, and a healthy snack is provided twice daily.
