We believe you should be involved every step of the way as your child moves between home and nursery. Please speak to us about any concerns you may have to help us develop a plan to improve your child's time at our nursery.
You will receive reports about your child's progress. Meetings are also held, allowing you to meet with the people taking care of your child. This will be an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your child or just to find out how they are doing.
We also hold parent evenings throughout the year. These will give you an insight into your child's development and progress. Each child will have a designated key person whose responsibility it is to monitor their progression. You will meet with your child's key person and help plan for their future development.
On the nursery notice board, we display information relating to activities and outings that are coming up, as well as to keep you up-to-date with what is going on around the nursery.
Our responsibility is to:
- make the welfare of children our first priority
- ensure every child is protected from abuse, whatever their age, culture, disability, gender, racial origin, language or religious belief
- provide a safe, secure and happy environment.
All staff are required to have an enhanced DBS (disclosure and barring) check. The nursery has a named member of staff responsible for safeguarding/child protection. We will respond appropriately to any allegations or suspicions of abuse which will will be treated and dealt with in a prompt and sensitive way, following our child protection policy.
Our staff are trained in children's first aid to ensure the safety of your child.
Throughout the nursery our child-to-adult ratios are maintained according to Ofsted requirements.
Security and protection
Our nursery has a secure door entry phone/video system and you and your child will be greeted by a member of staff on arrival. Our onsite security teams are able to respond to concerns of safety immediately.
Your child will not be allowed to leave the nursery with anyone unknown to staff unless you have previously arranged this. You must provide the nursery with information about every adult who will be allowed to collect your child. This includes the adult's name, relationship to you, and a brief description of the individual, a password and contact details.
