Read about our nursery code of practice

The individual needs of each child will be assessed and cared for. 

Every child's physical, emotional and social skills will be monitored and regularly discussed with parents, guardians and carers.

The teaching quality will be of a very high standard. 

No carer will discriminate against any child, parent, guardian or carer on grounds of race, culture, religion, gender, disability, life style or sexuality.

Carers will remain aware of and sensitive to differences of culture, equipment and activities will positively reflect today’s multicultural society.

Safety is the paramount concern whatever the activity. Adult to child ratios will be monitored and adhered to at all times. All equipment will comply to an approved British and EC standards and will be checked on a regular basis.

A good standard of hygiene will always be maintained at all times.

No child will be humiliated, embarrassed or frightened. Anti-social behaviour will be managed to ensure all children’s well being. Rules are set and agreed to by all including family members and positive encouragement of these rules set the basis for positive participation of all children’s rights.

All accidents will be reported immediately and entered into the accident book without delay. Parents will be fully informed as soon as possible and the cause of the accident will be dealt with to avoid repetition. All parents will need to sign documentation of accidents to acknowledge that it has been brought to their attention. We employ a health and safety company called Citation to help us manage our health and safety and employment law. This enables everyone that works, plays and visits the nursery to know that we take everyone’s health and well-being very seriously.

Social Services will be informed of any concerns nursery staff may have regarding a child’s safety or welfare.

All parents are entitled to help determine the care their child receives.

All parents are entitled to full information about the activities and the care received by their child. Time for discussion with parents will be made available.
