Pre-School Policies and Procedures
Policies and procedures help to ensure a consistent approach on important aspects of pre-school life. They allow staff, parents and children to know what is expected of them, and help create a productive, safe learning environment for all.
Our pre-school policies and procedures are introduced here; full copies can be downloaded by using the links at the bottom of the page.
We aim to make Rode Heath Pre-School accessible to children and their families from all sections of the local community, by adopting open, fair and clearly communicated procedures to ensure that everyone is aware of the pre-school and the application and admissions process. Children are admitted in the term following their third birthday, dependent upon the availability of space, and readiness of the individual child to stay happily within the group.
We respect the privacy of children and their parents/carers, and aim to ensure that all parents/carers can share information in the confidence that it will only be used to enhance the welfare of their child/ren, and to ensure that they access high quality early years care and education at Rode Heath Pre-School.
Behaviour Management Policy
We believe that children flourish best when their personal, social and emotional needs are met, and when there are clear, and developmentally appropriate, expectations for their age band. We aim to teach children to manage and express their emotions so that they can become content and have well-being and learn to behave in socially acceptable ways and to understand the needs and rights of others.
We believe that children and parents are entitled to expect courtesy and prompt, careful attention to their needs and wishes. Suggestions on how to improve our setting are always welcome and we will give prompt and serious attention to any concerns about the running of the pre-school. We anticipate that most concerns will be resolved quickly by an informal approach to the appropriate member of staff. If this does not achieve the desired result, we have a set of procedures for dealing with concerns.
Health and Safety
We believe that the health and safety of children is a priority and make our setting a safe and healthy place for children, parents, staff and volunteers. We aim to make all concerned aware of any health and safety issues and to minimise the hazards and risks to enable the children to thrive in a healthy and safe environment.
