Health & Safety

The safety and welfare of your children is our top priority. Here is some Health and Safety information:

Older Siblings

We ask that your child’s older siblings remain in the reception area of the Nursery when you are collecting your child. Siblings are not insured to be on our premises and, as our corridor is very narrow and busy, it can be a hazard for all.

 

Absence Calls

Should your child be absent please inform us on the 1st day of absence stating any illness and a possible return date, and every 2nd day thereafter for an update. This will ensure your child’s place is kept available and allows us to inform other parents of any possible infections present (please be assured no names are ever disclosed). Continued, unexplained absence or intermittent attendance may result in your child’s placement being revoked by Glasgow City Council.

 

DO NOT BRING RUCKSACKS/ BACKPACKS FOR CLOAKROOM STORAGE.

We do not have the capacity for them and children will, naturally, want to access them (even if they belong to another) and remove contents.

We cannot risk children sharing items with their friends who may have food allergies 

Nursery Bags

Please do not leave food/drink/medication in your child’s Nursery tote bag. This is against Council policy as it can be mistakenly taken by another parent/child with potentially harmful consequences due to allergies etc.

 

Nursery Deposit/Collection

Just a reminder;

  • Morning children MUST be collected and have vacated the building BY 11:50am (so parents/carers must arrive approximately 11:40am in order to have time to put on jackets/shoes etc) as staff are at lunch and there is no supervision for children.

     

  • Afternoon or Full-time children MUST be collected and have vacated the building  BY 4pm  (so parents/carers must arrive approximately 3:50pm in order to have time to put on jackets/shoes etc) as staff attend training and there is no supervision for children.

Continual late collection of children is reported to Social Work and Community Police as per advice from Glasgow City Council, and may result in your child having shorter placement hours, or in losing their placement.
