  • I understand if there has been a proven issue with regards the level of service, management will consider a reduced notice. The notice will start at the commencement of the complaint.  I understand I will need to apply in writing for this consideration. Please note another child biting or hitting your child can happen in any educational establishment however outstanding.  This is so painful for parents and emotional but please give this time to work through. Also, an un-detected soiled nappy can occur in outstanding nurseries. We require four weeks’ notice grant only and two weeks paid notices for these two latter scenarios.
