We will observe and record your childs development and progress and this will be shared regularly with the parents to ensure continuity of care between home and the setting. Respect is always shown towards the families traditions and practices and in our setting we will harmony with the values, practises and wishes of the parents.

All information held about children is kept in their own individual file which are located in a locked cabinet. Parents are free to ask to have a look at any information held in the setting pertaining their own child.

Child Protection

Any injuries that your child arrives from home with to the setting will be logged in our 'accident book' under 'home accidents'. Any accidents that may oocur while the child is in the setting  will also be logged into the book with an explanation and signature of the staff member who whitnessed the incident.
