Once you have decided that Roundhill is the nursery for you, we will ask you to fill in a registration form which acts as a parent nursery contract agreement. The registration form sets out the terms and conditions of enrolment,which you are asked to sign. This form along with the required registration fee will secure a place for your little one.
We then offer initial visits and settling in sessions where we can get to know you and your child(ren). You will be introduced to all staff within the nursery and to your child’s ‘Key Person’. This is a special time where attachments will start to be formed and vital information is shared about your child. This is done through discussions and the ‘Child Detail Pack’ and ‘Learning Journey Packs’. These packs are full of important information which will help us to care for and get to know you and your child.
We will also provide you with a parent information booklet which highlights our companies main policies and procedures and a curriculum guidance booklet which highlights how the EYFS works and is implemented. There are more in-depth policies and
procedures available on request along with a parents guide to the EYFS which we can reference for you.
Safeguarding and Protecting children is at the forefront of everything we believe in. We follow and work by some key documentation and legislation.
We have a thorough Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy which sets out our ‘Duty of Care’ to report any safeguarding issues to the appropriate authorities. We will endeavour to discuss any safeguarding concerns we may have regarding your child with you unless we feel this would put the child at risk of harm. This is our legal duty as childcare providers.
Parents are also encouraged to raise any concerns they may have and approach the DLS- Designated Safeguarding Lead for the nursery to discuss any concerns.
The DLS- Designated Safeguarding Lead for the setting is Emma Lawlor, nursery manager and owner. Claire, Deputy manager & Becky, Senior Nursery Nurse are the deputy DLS.
