We have policies and procedures in place at the Nursery and you are welcome to read them at your own leisure, they are in the ‘Parents Area’ outside the rooms in the nursery corridor. Here are some of the policies briefly.
Our security has been designed to ensure the safety and security of all of the children attending. The entrance to Daisy Day Nursery is through the Oldershaw Car park on Burns Avenue. We have a video entry system into MTEC reception and through the garden (weather depending.) When entering the school, parents are escorted with a member of MTEC staff through to the nursery entrance or the garden door. On the nursery door are doorbells, which parents can ring to call the attention of the staff. Doors are locked with keypad locks and only staff who work in the nursery are aware of the code to gain access. At the end of the session children are released only to the adults listed on the Consent form previously provided by you. Release to any other adult may occur with a written authorisation signed and dated by you, or by direct communication with keyworkers. We have a password system in place for this. Identification may be requested at any time.
Illnesses & Medication
To reduce the risk of cross-infection, any child with a contagious illness will not be permitted into the Nursery until the child has had 48 hours clear of any symptoms of the illness. If your child becomes ill whilst in our care, we will contact you to organise collection of your child.
Staff can administer medication BUT only if prior written consent from the parent has been given. The medicine must be clearly labelled with the child’s name. If your child has been prescribed anti-biotics, they should not attend Nursery until they have had between 24 and 48 for the medication to take effect.
IN THE EVENT OF ANY EMERGENCY, WE HAVE A STATUTORY DUTY OF CARE AND RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CONTACT THE EMERGENCY SERVICES.
Daisy Day is regulated and inspected by Ofsted, enabling the parents of 2, 3 and 4 years olds to claim their Early Years Entitlement which . Our most recent Ofsted Inspection took place in July 2011 and we were graded as a good nursery. You can read our full report on the Ofsted website at: www.ofsted.gov.uk
