In most cases, the person who dropped off your child must be the person who collects them at the end of the day. However, there are many children who get fetched by au pairs, nannies or other members of the family. If that will be the case for your child, make sure you let the creche know beforehand. They might request to see a photo of the person who will be fetching your child too.
