Privacy Notice Update

To meet Data Protection requirements and under the new GDPR May 2018 requirements, Little Dreams Nursery have issued our new Privacy Notice.

Little Dreams Nursery require parents / guardians to complete the registration form for their child to attend the Nursery. Your personal data and your child’s personal data will be kept for 1 year within the Nursery premises after your child leaves. No data will be kept on line for any amount of time once your child leaves Nursery, the only data that the Nursery has on line is your child’s registration form via e-mail.

Please see Little Dreams Nursery Data Protection Policy and Information Sharing Policy.

Little Dreams Nursery require data about your child to ensure appropriate and relevant learning opportunities are provided to your child according to age and development. We require this information to ensure your child has the best opportunities for further development / pre-school funding / outside agencies.

We require parent information so we have contact details for you in case the Nursery needs to contact you due to your child’s ill health, accidents or any other circumstances. We also require parents data to share with College if the parent attends College and College will be funding childcare and the Early Learning Team if your child will be receiving funding.
