We understand that proper hygiene is absolutely crucial in nursery settings and a top priority for most parents and guardians.
This is why we truly go the extra mile when maintaining the cleanliness across our settings. For example, in keeping with our homely environment, no outdoor shoes are worn inside our settings. All staff wear disposable aprons and gloves when feeding, cleaning and changing the children. The toys are cleaned every Friday and the nursery is cleaned at the end of each day with a deep sanitisation taking place weekly. The carpets in both settings also get cleaned regularly. Both our settings have received a 5 out of 5-star Food Hygiene Rating from the Southwark Council and Food Standards Agency.
We are very conscious of cross-contamination for both allergic and hygienic reasons which is why we ensure that all surfaces are wiped down prior to eating and/or activities and each child’s hands are washed throughout the day including prior to meals and after playing outside.
children who are poorly
We also have a very strict but fair policy when it comes to children who are poorly so as to do our very best to ensure that any viruses caught are contained where possible. We believe this also helps us in our ability to provide a consistent and reliable bank of permanent staff members; since those who are poorly or infected are kept away from our settings until they are fully recovered. This policy is given to all parents and guardians upon registration.
