Thank you for your query.  I am a Solicitor-Advocate in the UK and will be assisting you with your question today.

What would you like to know about this?

Has the incident been reported to the PTA?

The nursery also advised us they do a risk assessment in the morning and one in the evening. I think this isn't enough for the amount of kids . It's hasn't been reported to pta that I'm aware of

I would suggest you report the incident to the PTA and file a formal complaint with the school.

They have a duty to investigate and provide a formal response. You can then decide what do do once you receive a response.

I hope this answers your question.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
