This transition from home (or a day nursery setting) to a formal 'Reception Class' can potentially be an apprehensive time for children and parents alike. We do appreciate and understand this as we view your child's happiness and progress as very important. Parents are assured that a phone call to check on their child's progress and well-being is welcome during the school day. Here at Toybox Great Denham we will communicate freely with parents/ carers and other settings to ensure a smooth transition for your child.

We hold parent/teacher consultations every six months when you are invited to view your child's work (an ideal opportunity for you to discuss the progress of your child)
Your Child's Safety

Please do not let any other children out through the door when you leave.
When entering the building via finger recognition please do not let other parents in behind you.
Please shut the main door when you bring your child in or when collecting them.
