Safety and Security

Keeping your child safe is our number one priority and we work hard to provide you with peace of mind every single day.


We recognise how important it is that you feel comfortable leaving your child in a secure environment. Ofsted has highlighted our arrangements for safeguarding as effective and have praised our team’s understanding of their responsibilities to care for your child.


A secure nursery

In order to ensure that the nursery is secure, our entrance remains locked and only staff can give access to families and visitors. We build strong relationships with parents to ensure that the staff know who should be picking up each child and we have a password pick-up system in place if you want to arrange for someone unfamiliar to the nursery to collect them.

Ofsted have praised our arrangements for safeguarding as effective. All personal details are stored securely and can only be accessed by our staff.


An open relationship with parents

We are confident that the procedures we have in place ensure that every child in our care will remain safe and secure as they learn and play. We are pleased that Ofsted has recognised this but we constantly review all our measures. Parents are welcome to view our policies and we build relationships with parents where they are encouraged to discuss any concerns they might have with the management team.


Experienced and reliable team

Our staff work together to ensure that your child can learn, play and grow in a safe way. We require all our team to have qualifications in safeguarding, food hygiene and paediatric first-aid and we run frequent ‘top up’ training sessions. As your would expect, all our staff have enhanced DBS checks carried out on them as standard. 

Our staff are experienced in caring for children safely and we are proud of how many are longstanding members of the team, including some who have been with the nursery for more than a decade. To supplement this experience, every member of staff undergoes continuous training so that they are always up to date on the latest best practice in childcare and safety.


A safe environment

Ofsted have commended our efforts to identify and reduce hazards in the nursery and staff do continuous checks both indoors and outdoors, regularly checking all toys and equipment. Our large outdoor play areas are safe and secure, with staff always supervising children.
