Policy and Procedure Guidance

 

  Wonderland Day Nursery and its employees (including volunteers, placements and any

                     other type of carer) will always strive to maintain ‘best practice’ within the setting. 

                     The care of children is a weighty responsibility that is rightly controlled and managed

                     through various acts and regulation. Many of these laws and regulations require the day

                     nursery to produce and implement policies and procedures to ensure compliance. In

                     addition, Wonderland recognises that some processes and methods of work require a

                     distinct set of rules to assist its employees in fulfilling some vital functions within the

                     bounds of regulation.

 

                     Therefore the nursery has produced a set of policies and procedures which are in this

                     folder to act as a ready reference for employees and parents alike.

                      In formulating the policies the following legislation has been used as reference:
