Our policies :: outings policy

When taking Children on Outings it is essential that proper planning is done to ensure the safety and welfare of all children involved.

I obtain written parental permission for all routine and special outings. I inform parents of any planned special trips for example to the coast or a local farm.

I ensure that I take with me everything I may need for the children, First Aid Kit, Nappies and changing bag (if required) spare clothes, mobile phone.

I have developed plans on what to do in the event of an emergency.

I will endeavour to organise outings to fit in with the needs of the children, and ensure that I have the necessary equipment and resources to keep them safe. These include care seat for all children up to 4ft 5in tall, pushchairs and harness. In all trips in the car I will ensure each child is securely strapped into their car seat and that the maximum number of passengers for the car is never exceeded.

I will ensure that the car is properly maintained with a current MOT certificate Tax and Insurance. I will never leave your child unattended when out, especially in the car.

If you have any concerns regarding this policy please discuss them with me.

“My child is very happy to stay with Donna and that's all that matters.”
