The Nursery strictly follows East Dunbartonshire Council's Absence Monitoring Procedures. If your child is unable to attend nursery telephone or text nursery as soon as possible. If we are unable to make contact with Parents/Carers or Emergency Contacts of absent children, we must contact Attendance Officer.
In the interests of your own child's safety, please make sure that the nursery staff are introduced to all adults who are likely to collect your child from nursery. The nursery staff are unable to let an unknown adult collect your child. If there are any changes to the collection routine for your child, please advise a member of staff.
If your child is unwell please contact us as soon as possible. In accordance with recommendations from the Public Health Board, if your child has sickness or diarrhoea he or she must be clear of these symptoms for 48 hours before returning to nursery.
If your child becomes ill or has a serious accident we will phone and inform you. (If we cannot contact you we will phone your emergency contacts. Please ensure your contact information is continually updated.) If necessary, your child will be transported to the nearest hospital accompanied by a member of staff.
Parents/Carers please note, that as employees of East Dunbartonshire Council, the welfare of children is paramount to us. In this nursery we follow East Dunbartonshire Council's Child Protection Guidelines which aim to deliver the outcomes contained with the document Protecting Children and Young People
Framework for Standards in Child Protection produced by the Scottish Executive (copy available to view from the manager of the nursery.) This document contains 8 standards.
A copy of our Child Protection Policy is available in the nursery Policies folder on display in the Welcome Area.
