Visits, Outings and Safety
To expand each child’s experiences of other environments, and as part of our overall ethos we plan specific trips or outings to incorporate outdoor resources such as local parks, the library and museums.
These we feel contribute to the way children learn benefiting their health and their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
Safety is a very important aspect of life in and out of the nursery. Staffing ratios therefore rise to one member of staff to three children when out of the unit. Risk assessments are always completed to ensure that outings are safe and enjoyable.
Within the nursery again for each child’s safety, all visitors must be signed in and out of the building. If and when children are collected by individuals other than the parent /carer those collecting are required to show identification and know the child’s unique password before being allowed to leave with the child.
