What support will there be for my child’s overall well-being?

Our practitioners are welcoming and friendly, providing an inclusive, sensitive and positive approach. They provide good role models for positive behaviour and are consistent in the day to day care of all our children. We are flexible in our routines to provide a positive environment for your child’s needs and provide key-person care such as changing nappies.

Individual health care plans can be adopted if necessary and staff will be trained in giving the appropriate medication for your child if required. Should your child require regular prescribed medication you will be required to complete and sign a Medication Book on arrival and once administration of the medicine has been completed you will be asked to sign the form on collection.
There is always a minimum of 1 First Aid trained member of staff in each session. Staff undertake a vigorous recruitment and induction process. Karen Montgomery and Lydia Forrest are Designated Safeguarding Officers, all staff have completed online Safeguarding training and senior members of staff are on a rolling Safeguarding programme.

Policies and Procedures are available for parents to view within the setting and on our website www.littledragonspreschool.org

Activities will be adapted to ensure your child is able to interact fully with the environment, and visual strategies, such as a visual time table is used to help them understand our routines. Our book area is welcoming and provides a quiet area to retreat to if your child is tired, or needs some quiet time.

We are aware that some kinds of undesirable behaviour may arise we will refer to our behaviour management policy and will work with you and your child to provide a consistent and planned approach to improve behaviour.
