Before a child attends nursery for the first time, to avoid any distress, parents are invited to bring their child for a short settling in period. Children will gradually be settled in, generally a week to two weeks previous to their start date. This is done over a course of a few sessions where parents stay with their child and gradually spend less time in the play room. However, if a child needs more time to feel at home at the nursery then this will be provided.
Any queries should be discussed with supervisors, the assistant manager and/or the manager. Throughout the process of a complaint or suggestion the SCSWIS can be contacted at any point.
Health and Safety
All doors are kept locked and children are not allowed to leave the nursery unless collected by their parents or an adult known to staff. In the interest of general health any child suffering from an infectious or contagious condition should not attend nursery. Please refer to the document ‘Exclusion procedure for Illnesses’, which will be issued in the parents pack when your child enrols.
All members of staff will be trained in First Aid.
We have a high standard of hygiene throughout the nursery.
Changes of clothes are available in case of any accidents, however, these must be returned.
The garden and outdoor area is supervised at all times and securely fenced, ensuring children are protected from the car park and dropping off area. At Little Angels Nursery we feel it is important that all children are given the opportunity to have as much time as possible outside to experience the wide range of outdoor toys and equipment.
Many parents require full time child care due to work commitments; therefore, we at Little Angels Nursery understand that involvement can be difficult. However, parents are welcome to help at parent sessions, parties, nursery outings or in any way they feel able to.
Parents will have the opportunity to speak to member of staff daily regarding their child/ren. If there are any concerns, all staff members are there to help and advise.
Snacks and Meals
During the morning and afternoon snacks are provided and usually consist of milk or water with a variety of fruits, vegetables, toast or cereals. Children who attend nursery over lunchtime will be required to bring a packed lunch with them. Of which, can consist of homemade meals.
NB Detailed policies can be obtained by contacting the nursery manager, Lianne Anderson
