Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of some of the questions that parents often ask. Let us know if you have other questions that would be useful to have on this page.
1.How do I get a place for my child in the school?
If you would like your child to attend the school, please contact us first of all and we can confirm what places are available or put your name on our waiting list.
2.Can I choose a morning or afternoon place?
Let us know if you would rather your child attended in the morning or afternoon (see the ‘session times’ section). Sometimes parents can choose, but if TVPS is very busy sometimes there may only be a space left in one of the sessions.
3.Can my child stay for the whole day?
If there is space we would be more than happy to have your child attend all day. Our day starts at 9am and finishes at 3.15pm.
4.What should my child wear to TVPS?
TVPS is a very busy place. We will be painting, digging and playing indoors and out. Please don’t send your child to school in their best clothes!! We have a lovely pre-school jumper and T shirt to purchase should you wish your child to have simple uniform on to attend. This is of course not compulsory but we do feel it provides a sense of unity and place to the children. Please make sure their clothes (especially coats, hats and water bottles) are clearly labelled. It is a good idea to put them in comfortable trousers that they can easily undo themselves when they need the toilet.
5.What if my child is not toilet trained?
Children starting school are all at different stages of toilet training. Some will be very confident, others may still be in a nappy. No child will be stopped from joining TVPS because they are not yet toilet-trained. Please let us know how your child is getting on before they start school so we can do our best to support them to become independent on the toilet. Some children with additional needs may remain in a nappy during their time in nursery. We have full changing facilities on site and will always do our very best to meet your child’s needs.
6.Do I need to bring any food into nursery?
Lunch time. Parents are expected to provide a cold packed lunch for their child. Children are grouped together at tables in small numbers. A practitioner sits with each table to support the children to eat the lunch that has been provided and enjoy a sociable time. Following or before lunch, children go back out to play for a short period. During this period more children arrive or go home and the afternoon session begins, mirroring the morning routine.
8.Will you give my child medicine in TVPS?
If your child has asthma and uses a pump it is important that we keep a pump and a spacer in school. You will need to sign a consent form when you do this. We have a school policy on medicines. Usually if your child is ill and needs medicine they should not be in school. If medicine needs to be administered in school you will need to discuss this with our manager and sign a special form.
