Health and Safety Statement

The health and safety of our children, staff and visitors is of utmost importance. It is the policy of Child’s Play to strive to achieve an environment that constantly offers the highest possible level of health and safety in all activities and operations, and to comply with all health and safety laws applicable to our school, through risk assessment, our ‘good catch’ system, procedures and continuous in-house training. ‘Safety begins with you’.

There are some children who will need more assistance completing some tasks pertaining to Health and Safety, for example, assistance in the bathroom, assistance walking in the line, assistance coming in and going out of the garden. It is our policy that we get to know all of our children to ensure that each child’s individual needs are met.
