A risk assessment and health and safety check of the room and premises is carried out before the crèche begins. Equipment is safety checked and PAT tested where necessary. Each child has a key worker and children cannot leave the room unless to go to the toilet accompanied by staff who wait outside with verbal contact only. We ask all parents to complete a registration form and sign children in and out of the crèche. We work to OFSTED ratios for staff and square footage in the room.
