Parents Information

Below are the most frequently asked questions by our Parents. For new starters there is a helpful information sheet which you can download at the bottom of this page. To log into your Nursery in a Box account please see link below. If you have any other questions regarding your child’s needs please call your site Manager direct, for general enquiries please call the office.

Nursery in a Box

All preschools use Nursery in a Box admin systems to create booking patterns, registers and invoices. This is our main point of communication with information, diary date reminders and a way for you to communicate with your site manager.

Please download the Parent Admin app where you can see monthly invoices and emails directly to your phone, laptop or ipad. Click on the link below to go to the LOG IN screen.


Children are also required to purchase an all-in-one weather suit for Forest School sessions if they attend on a Forest School day.

All children are required to wear the preschool t-shirt and sweatshirt these are available to purchase online from Casey's Schoolwear in Blackfen. Additional items available to purchase are zip-up fleeces, woollen hats and legionnaires hats.

They may wear their own bottoms, but sensible enough to move around on play equipment.

They will also need a pair of wellies for garden play in bad weather and a sun hat in summer months (no open toed sandals).

Our outside learning is very important to us so it is essential that you dress your child appropriately. By this we mean bringing a coat everyday, and on cold winter days, hats, scarfs and gloves! On especially cold days double layers may be an idea if your child feels the cold. Please mark all your child’s belongings with his/her name.
