Security - Health & Safety
We have a high regard for the safety of your child while in our care. The 2 front doors have finger print entry - for which anyone bringing or collecting a child needs to be registered before they have independent access. Parents are automatically invited to register & they have to give written permission for anyone else to be authorised for registration.
Any person involved with the care of your child will not disclose information about them or their family to a third party.
We are committed to effective controls on the spreading of illness & ask that you work with us in achieving this. To this end all children requiring prescribed medication must have the first 24 hours of medication at home - this ensures they are responding to the medication & helps to control infection.
In cases of sickness & diarrhoea you will be contacted for immediate collection & we ask you to ensure they have been symptom free for a minimum of 48 hours before they return to Nursery - please follow this in the event of illness at home. If your are unsure about any illness - please contact Wellies for advice - BEFORE bringing your child to Nursery.
Fire - we have regular fire drills - so that the children become used to the sound of the alarms. The building has an electrical smoke detection system - which is maintained by Britannia Fire Ltd. In the event of non-return to the building, the children will be taken to the nearest place of safety - Orchard Farmhouse, the owners home which is within walking distance. A full contact list is kept there, so that collection can be arranged.
