All visitors to the nursery are required to sign the visitor’s book on arrival. Any persons on the premises, be it for maintenance/servicing, visits, meetings etc, are always chaperoned by a member of staff.
Our staff adhere to strict policies and procedures regarding the authorisation for collection of children. We have a video intercom system so that staff can monitor who is entering and leaving the nursery throughout the day.
All employees are checked with the Criminal Investigations Bureau when they start at Little Cherubs and are also required to attend a formal induction day, where training is given on our policies and procedures to insure consistency of care.
Both our nurseries have robust Health and Safety procedures in place to guarantee the children’s safety and security at all times. Each room and outdoor area is risk assessed on a daily basis to ensure the environment is safe for our children, and regular maintenance is carried out accordingly.
We also believe it is our duty to teach children in our care about keeping themselves safe; so discussions and activities around subjects, such as road safety and ‘stranger danger’ for example, are built into our curriculum.
