Meadowbank Day Nursery is committed to Safeguarding children. We have a comprehensive policy in place which can be downloaded from the link provided below.
Our staff are regularly updated on current legal guidelines regarding Child Protection and the procedures that need to be followed in response to a concern.
We have stringent recruitment procedures. All new employees are subjected to an enhanced DBS disclosure, are required to have a minimum of two references and have a thorough induction period before being left unsupervised with the children.
