Safeguarding Children

The overriding objective at KTB Kids is to provide a secure, safe and happy environment to enable parents and guardians to relax when leaving their children in our care.

The standards at KTB Kids are uncompromisingly high without exception throughout the nursery. Robust systems are in place for the safety of the children attending the setting. All staff hold a clear disclosure and barring service check. They are well trained and have excellent support particularly relating to issues surrounding the safeguarding of the children. The comprehensive policies and procedures that are in place at KTB Kids are familiar to all individuals that are interacting with the children within the nursery. This includes being aware of potential hazards within the nursery and the surrounding environment and how to actively protect children from these hazards. Daily risk assessments are completed and are reflective of the situation each day, there is a separate risk assessment for each daily outing.

The premises have been designed with safety in mind. With strict entry procedures using coded keypads and intercom systems and signing in procedures within all the KTB Kids areas. The equipment that is used is suitable and safe for the children and it is checked regularly. Infection control measures are in place including no outdoor shoes in baby rooms and stringent hand-washing procedures in all areas using gels and foams. All children are signed in and out of the nursery and the visitor policy is strict and well regulated. The aim is for 80% of staff to have up to date first aid training. Any accidents or incidents that do occur are recorded and audited monthly, they are notified to the parent/carer as soon as possible.
