Many parents like seeing and being able to share photos, others do not, and we do respect your wishes. Here at Nursery Rhymes we always ensure the photos that we do share of the children are not their faces (only side profile, overhead images or backs of head) this is because we believe this is the safest way of sharing images on social media for all our customers to see.
