It is the primary aim of all of our settings to ensure the safety of all children in our care and all staff members.
Secure Biometric System
Each nursery has a state-of-the art biometric door entry system so only pre-registered adults are able to gain access, and access is automatically monitorred and recorded. New parents are registered on the system during settling in.
In addition, each nursery has 24 hour external CCTV monitorring, again which is recorded and can be viewed live inside the nursery office. All doors with access to the outside are kept locked during opening hours. No child is released into the care of someone we don’t recognise or expect to collect the child.
We have a comprehensive policy regarding the safeguarding of children, including levels of supervision and it is mandatory for all staff to attend external training in this area.
Safe Recruitment Practice
Finally, all setting managers are required to undergo formal training in safe recruitment practice to ensure we have a rigorously checked team in place: this includes an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
