Arriving @ Kendra
If your baalak is under the age of 12 please ensure you drop your baalak to the Choki Desk and sign them in. There will be some limited parking on Kendra (if you arrive early) or you can park on a road nearby (Locket Road, Kenton Lane, College Hill Road, ...). Please ensure you respect the local community and do not block any driveways. If your Baalak arrives later than 9 AM they will be marked in late. 

Picking Up @ Kendra
All baalako will be in their dastas in the hall or playground or in the Hall. Please find your baalak's Dasta Nayak so they know you are taking your baalak home. 

Absence
For one off absences or leaving early please use this online form. If you will be absent for a long period of time please discuss with the Kendra Nayak by emailing harrow@shishukunj.org.uk to ensure it does not impact your baalak's development.

Leaving Early
If your baalak is leaving Kendra Early please inform our administration team at the Choki Desk in the morning to discuss the most appropriate time to pick them up without affecting our activities. If your Baalak is regularly required to leave early please email harrow@shishukunj.org.uk to discuss this with the Kendra Nayak to discuss the impact on your baalak's development.
