“Catherington Nursery has a dated rota which parents can sign if they would like to help at a particular session or sessions. Helping at the session enables parents to see what the day-to-day life of the nursery is like and to join in helping the children to get the best out of their activities.”

We run a parent group that helps the Nursery with fundraising and all parents/carers are invited to join.
