Safe Environment

The safety of  children is our paramount concern. Some of our many safety features in the classrooms and grounds are listed below

• We are protected by CCTV system in each classroom and all around the building.
• Safety glass on all windows and doors.
• Risk assessments are carried out daily.
• Security lighting to front and rear of the building.
• First Aid supplies in all class rooms.        
• Child size toilets, low level hand basins and paper towel dispensers.
• Safety gates on stairs.
• Fire drills are held twice a year.
• Off street parking


Accidents and Incidents

All accident’s or incidents however minor are recorded in an accident or incident book, parents and carers are informed on collection of the child.  All Belmont Day Nursery are first aid trained and can administer first aid. Where a serious accident or incident has occurred we do not hesitate to seek emergency medical advice or treatment. We request parental/guardian consent for this when a child registers at our nursery.


As policy we only administer medication that is prescribed by a doctor. This must be  in current date and provided to the nursery in its original container/bottle clearly  labelled with the child’s name and dosage  instructions. A medicine consent form must be signed by a parent every day that the medication is to be administered. Procedures for administering, recording and storage of medicines are strictly enforced.

Children who contract and have been diagnosed with any infectious illness such as  conjunctivitis etc must not return to the nursery for at least 24 hours after the illness has ceased. Children  prescribed antibiotics should not return to the nursery for at least 48 hours after they have started the course. Parents are made aware of any illness that may be of concern.

Whilst the nursery fully appreciates the needs of working parents we observe strict health and safety precautions where the well being of all the children and nursery staff is paramount. Should a child become unwell during the course of a full or part-time session the nursery reserves the right to contact parents and ask them to collect their child. 


We aim to provide a safe and supervised service to all our children. It is the duty and responsibility of Belmont Day Nursery to protect all our children from harm  and neglect. We have a specially trained member of staff who acts as a Child Protection Officer we comply to child protection procedures and are obliged to report any suspected cases of abuse to the Area Child Protection Team.
