Safety and Security
The safety and security of your child is of paramount importance and access to the pre-school is strictly controlled. All visitors to the pre-school are asked to provide identification and to sign the visitors book on arrival. Our staff are very conscientious and are required to adhere to strict policies and procedures regarding the authorisation for collection of children. We also have a fully trained Health and Safety Coordinator to ensure safety and security at all times All staff are employed having undergone a check by the criminal records bureau and all hold an enhanced disclosure. They are also required to attend formal safeguarding training as part of their induction. This training is further supported by two qualified staff who hold the position of Safeguarding Officers, who are fully trained and on site at the pre-school. Keeping your child safe at all times is a priority.
How parents take part in the pre-school
As a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance we recognise parents as the first and most important educators of their children. All of the staff see themselves as co-workers with you in providing care and education for your child.
There are many ways in which parents take part in making the pre-school a welcoming and stimulating place for children and parents, such as:
exchanging knowledge about their children's needs, activities, interests and progress with the staff;
helping at sessions of the pre-school;
sharing their own special interests with the children;
helping to provide materials used in the children's play activities;
taking part in events and informal discussions about the activities and curriculum provided by the pre-school;
joining in community activities in which the pre-school takes part; and
building friendships with other parents in the pre-school.
Partnerships between parents, children and members of staff are naturally built up whilst your child grows with us and we welcome your involvement at anytime.
Volunteering as a parent helper
You can offer to take part in a session by sharing your own interests and skills with the children.
Do feel free to arrange to drop into the pre-school, if you would like to see it at work or to speak with the staff.
