Nursery Policies

The nursery’s policies help us to make sure that the service provided is of the highest quality and that attending the nursery is an enjoyable and beneficial experience for each child and her/his parents. The staff work together to adopt the policies and they collectively have the opportunity to take part in the annual review of the policies. This review helps us to make sure that the policies support and enable the nursery in providing a quality service for its members and the local community.

Copies of the policies are available to read on the premises on request.

The First Days
We want your child to feel happy and safe at the nursery. To make sure that this is the case, the staff will work with you to decide on the best way to help your child to settle into the nursery. Generally we offer two weeks, in which free visits to the nursery help them become settled, and liaise with you in deciding when you prefer these to be. There is more information on this aspect in our settling-in policy, which forms part of this prospectus

Setteling in policy
We want children to feel safe, stimulated and happy in our nursery and to feel secure and comfortable with staff. We also want parents to have confidence in both their children’s well being and their role as active parents and participants in their child’s development with the nursery.

  Aim
We aim to make our nursery a welcoming place where children settle quickly and easily because consideration has been given to the individual needs and circumstances of children and their family.

Methods
Before a child starts to attend the nursery, we use a variety of ways to provide the parents with information. These include written information (including our prospectus), displays about nursery activities and individual meeting with parents.

We provide opportunities for the child and the parents to visit the nursery. When a child starts to attend, we work with the parents to decide on the best way to help the child to settle into the nursery.

We allocate a key person to each child and family.

The key person welcomes and looks after the child and the parents at the child’s first session.

Within the first four weeks of starting we discuss and work with the parents to create their child’s record of achievement.
