Our Approach

Children who are ill must be kept at home and children who are taken ill while in our care will be required to be picked up from the premises immediately their parent(s) or guardian(s) are notified.
In order to prevent the spread of infection, parents/guardians are asked to keep children with contagious/infectious conditions at home for at least 3-5 days after the condition has cleared. Examples of such conditions include chicken pox, diarrhea, conjunctivitis (Apollo) measles, cough and Pneumonia.
Babies with more than 2 diarrhea nappies will be required to be picked up from the crèche upon the notification of their parent(s) or guardian(s).
We would be grateful if you would let us know as soon as possible if your child is absent due to illness by telephoning us with information on the nature and likely duration of the illness.
In the event of an emergency involving your child, you will be notified as soon as possible. Should your child be taken to the hospital, a member of staff will remain with him / her until you arrive.
If your child is involved in an accident, we will take appropriate action to deal with the injury (e.g. First Aid) and will inform you of the circumstances of the incident
Medicine will not normally be administered to your child unless a “Medicine Authorization” form has been filled and dully signed by the child’s parent(s) or guardian(s). This does not include the administration of basic First Aid where necessary.
In the crèche, our daily routine includes a rest period when the children are encouraged to sleep or rest quietly.
Once potty training has been introduced at home, we are happy to continue it during the day whilst the child is in our care. For potty training to be effective, parents are asked to ensure that their child continues to be potty trained at home and not just while in school.
As we cannot take responsibility for the loss or damage of personal belongings, we do not encourage children to bring toys or any other such personal belongings to school because of potential loss or damage. If your child does lose anything, please raise this with our staff.
As our purpose and mission is to provide the children with the highest standard of education and to also give them care that compliments the care you give at home, we encourage parents to work with us as part of the team. We are always ready to listen to parents’ views and opinions and to involve you whenever we can.
Parents are encouraged to discuss any concerns they may have about their child’s welfare and development with the Proprietress or Head teacher. However, you are welcome to speak to the Proprietress if you need to. In addition to the regular updates on your child’s progress, we hold regular Parents / Teachers Association (PTA) meetings. Informal meetings can also be arranged at your convenience.
Providing children and their families with quality childcare and education, depends largely on effective behaviour management. To this end, we operate a non – abusive behaviour management policy that is aimed at helping the children feel, not just a sense of safety and security, but also to help them develop trust and confidence. We do this by providing the children with clear expectations of their behaviours. It is not uncommon for there to be incidents of physical aggression amongst children, especially when their communication skills are still less advanced. When such situations arise, we try to deal with the matter as swift and sympathetically as possible.
As we are responsible for your child / ward’s welfare while in our care, we are unable to release children to persons not specified in the registration form. Children will normally not be released to drivers or unauthorized family members. However, a “Pick – up card” will be issued to you for those occasions when none of the persons specified in the registration form are available to pick up your child / ward. The child will be released only on the presentation of the card.
In the interest of the children in our care, you are required to fill a health form and submit a copy of the immunization record, and advise us of any allergies or medical conditions they may have before they start school. We also request that you keep us updated with any changes to your child’s state of health.
In other to promote good and proper hygiene habits, the children are introduced to hand washing before meals, after using the toilet and after playing outside. Staff are also encouraged to keep high personal and public hygiene standards.
