  • Security

    Security is always of concern and we take the subject very seriously. All entry and exit points to the nursery are coded. If you don’t know the codes or you haven’t had your fingerprint access registered then you can’t get in.

    We govern access through the main door as follows:

    Staff/Parents/Guardians – fingerprint access only

    Directors – fingerprint or card entry

    Visitors – Door entry via staff ensuring that their identity is checked/verified and they complete the visitors’ book and are accompanied at all times whilst in nursery.

    Contractors – Door entry via Manager/Deputy ensuring that their identity is checked/verified and they complete the visitors book and have read the contractor’s safety leaflet prior to starting work. Contractors DO NOT work in rooms occupied           by children. Trusted contractors DO NOT need to be accompanied unless they need access to child occupied areas.

    *****

    When allowing children to exit the nursery, Staff have to be 100% sure that the person picking the child up is allowed to do so. THE ONLY way to be sure that this is the case is to have the names of the registered persons for that child (and their picture) on a database than can be accessed by staff at exit time. Thus there are two imperatives:

    There must be a picture of everyone who is to pick the child up from nursery – no excuses – we must have one!

    If for some reason staff are not familiar with the person picking a child up and a photo cannot be found on the child’s database then WE WILL NOT LET THE CHILD GO!

     NO CHILD is allowed to leave these premises unless we are 100% sure that s/he is leaving with someone who is currently registered on our photographic database as a collector of that child. No matter how inconvenient this may be and no matter how embarrassing this may be.

    *****

    Besides ensuring that strangers can’t get in, security in a nursery is also about ensuring that the children can’t get out without their parent/carer being with them. To this end ALL the children’s outside play space is fenced and gated. All of the gates are locked using a code known only to staff.
