It is the policy to give a warm welcome to each child on arrival.
Parents/carers are requested to pass the care of the child to a specific member of staff who will ensure his/her safety, and that their attendance is recorded in the register.
The staff member receiving the child immediately records his/her arrival in the daily attendance register. Any specific information provided by the parents should be recorded.
If the parent requests the child to be given medicine during the day the staff member must ensure that the medicine consent procedure is followed.
If the child is not to be collected by the parent/carer at the end of the session, an agreed procedure must be followed to identify the nominated adult.
The planned departure of the child should be anticipated by the key worker in the group. All medicines should be recovered from the medicine box/fridge only when the parent/carer has arrived and handed to him/her personally.
No child should be handed over to anyone other than the known parent/carer unless an agreement has been made at the time of arrival. On departure, the child register must be immediately marked to show that the child has left the premises.
