We ensure there is a full risk assessment completed for each trip we do and we have parent signatures for all trips we do too.

We encourage the children's learning through play we operate a free flow to the outdoors in all weathers too.

Our staff ratios are as follows

Children aged 6 weeks- 2     -1-3

Children aged 2-3                1-4

Children aged 3-5              1-8 (1-13) between 8-4 pm as Karen the manager and Tracey the deputy have BA in early years and education and therefore OFSTED will allow this higher ratio between these times of 1-13.

We operate a higher staff ratio when outdoors and on trips (see policies and procedures).

At Little Angels we encourage all our staff who work here to obtain at least a level 3 qualification as the OFSTED guidelines state this. If we have any volunteers working in the nursery these are not counted in the ratios and are never left alone with the children. Volunteers are beneficial to our setting as they provide a lot of care for the children, they can read stories and play with the children and it nice for children to have some adult led activities.

 

Karen and safiya ,run the preschool together. Carole who volunteers has  over 40 years experience working with children, Karen ,safiya and Carole work very closely together in preschool to ensure each child is learning to their full potential and plan around the childs interests.

This room is registered for 28 children and we ensure that we also give the children some time in small groups for activities..In preschool we do lots of  phonics, with the children and letters and sounds in a fun way to ensure children have that readiness for school. We make all our activities fun for the children and offer some structure and free play through the day.

We are going to be having 14 in the preschool room because of the covid 19 and safety guidelines

 We also take part in langauge through listening activities and use the wellcom to support children in communication.

Confidentiality     

We respect confidentiality at all times. However any information given that could affect the safety and welfare of a child (safe guarding issues) may be passes on to another agency. The staff have a duty to do this and this is a legal requirement by OFSTED and law.

In this room is also the office which is operated in here due to the cctv cameras and the manager working within this room too. All records are kept locked in this room and Katie the admin manager ensures the office is of a high standard and all parents will pay fees in here too.

 

Access to information

Any records about an individual child are to be openly shared with the child’s parents/carers. Records kept on the premises can only be accessible by Little Angels staff.We comply with the GDPR 2018 legislation.

Emergency medical treatment

We endeavor to contact you in case of an emergency. If we are unable to contact you we will seek medical advice for your child (see child’s personal record form). We also ask who the childs next of kin as this is important for our records.

What to wear at nursery

In order for the children to be able to explore and experiment with all kinds of materials it is the best to send you child dressed in clothes that are easily washable and not new. Although we do provide aprons some children get messier than others!!

Can all parents make sure in the colder months that you provide a warm coat, hat, and gloves as we will still take the children out in all weathers as this is the time the children can discover and learn all about the outside!! (For example making footprints in the snow, dancing and singing in the rain!!)

 

Safeguarding

If someone different is picking your child up you must inform the nursery as soon as possible. We will never let any child go with anyone unless parents have authorised this and the name of this person is on the authorisation list. The staff always ask for a password and a description if someone different is picking the child up. This security is for the safety of your child and we really do value safeguarding very highly here at Little Angels.

There is CCTV on every exit and entrance is covered with a camera we ensure the highest standard of safety for your child here at Little Angels and we always striving to make our setting into an excellent one.All the staff are trained in safeguarding and we ensure the highest quality of care at Little Angels at all times.

We strive to improve our setting and we welcome your comments at all times.
