Policies

Our policies are briefly summarised below, however a full copy of our policies may be borrowed by request from the Nursery. It will soon be available to download from this page.

 

Admissions

We operate an inclusion and equality policy and ensure that children have access to nursery places and services irrespective of gender, race, religion, colour or creed.  Prior to a child attending nursery, parents must complete and sign a booking and registration form.  These forms provide the nursery with personal details relating to the child and other essential information relating to the child’s individual requirements.

 

Confidentiality

The nursery’s work with children and families will sometimes bring us into contact with confidential information.  To ensure all those using and working in the nursery can do so with confidence, all staff are required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

 

Behaviour Management

We believe that children and adults flourish best in an ordered environment in which everyone knows what is expected of them and the children are free to develop their play and learning without fear of being hurt or hindered by anyone else.  We aim to work towards a situation in which children can develop self-discipline and self-esteem in an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement.

 

Safeguarding Children

The nursery will follow the guidance issued by the Suffolk Safeguarding Children Board and Ofsted.  We will always create an environment in which children, staff, visitors and carers are safe at all times.

 

Health and Hygiene

Our nursery promotes a healthy lifestyle and a high standard of hygiene in its day to day work with children and adults.  Smoking will not be permitted on the premises, either indoors or outdoors.

 

Health and Safety

The safety of young children is of paramount importance.  In order to ensure the safety of both children and adults, the nursery will ensure that all children are supervised by adults at all times and will always be within sight of an adult.

 

Staff

We are vigilant in our recruitment procedures aiming to ensure all people working with children are qualified and suitable to do so.
