Safe and Secure

Admissions

We are registered for ninety children, with a maximum of twenty five between the ages of 0 and 2 years. We welcome all children regardless of sex, race, religion, colour or creed. The availability of spaces is based on the age of the child, staff/child ratios and the registration requirements. To secure a place for your child we request that you complete our application form and send or hand it back to us.

Settling in

Once we’ve received and accepted your application we’ll arrange free settling in sessions for you and your child so we can understand their likes and dislikes, and they can begin to familiarise themselves with the surroundings and staff.
Arrivals and departures

Upon arrival at the nursery every visitor can only gain admission through a secure voice and cctv entry system. Every child is warmly welcomed every day and a member of staff directly continues to care for them the minute you leave for your working day. At the end of the day a member of staff ensures your child leaves with you or a previously specified carer.

Safeguarding 

Your child’s well-being and development is of paramount importance to us, therefore all staff are trained to a high level in safeguarding. If we feel your child’s health and well being is being compromised while in their home environment we have a duty of care to make a referral to local social services. However, we will always discuss with parents beforehand any concerns we may have. Please be aware that as a setting we are here to support parents and children, our staff are here to help and support if you have any concerns regarding yourself or your child.

Medicine, inhalers and epi pens

Both prescribed and un prescribed medicines can be given at the nursery if necessary. However we do not recommend frequent use of medicines. All medicine needs to be in date and your child’s name needs to be clearly labelled.
