    Five safety checks ahead of enrolling your child at nursery


    When the time comes for your child to go to nursery for the first time you are bound to feel a sense of sadness. This is the first time your baby will have left the home and you are bound to feel like they are growing up too fast. Therefore, you will want to be careful when enrolling your child at nursery

    Things to consider after enrolling your child at nursery

    After the initial upset of enrolling your child in nursery for the first time, there are a number of things you’ll need to do to ensure your child is safe at all times in their new surroundings. Accidents, slips, trips and falls, and even the journey from home need to be considered.

    Here are a few key points:

    • Ensure the nursery is well looked after. Untidiness and things lying on the floor could easily cause accidents
    • The nursery location – is the nursery on a main road? If so you have to consider whether you want your child on such a busy route, which could increase their chances of being involved in a road traffic accident
    • Before enrolling your child at nursery ensure that all the teachers and carers have had full background checks, to ensure they are qualified to look after your child
    • The number of children in the class. You want your child to get the care and attention they deserve and large class numbers may mean teachers cannot dedicate enough time to all the children, especially if they’ve had an accident
    • Are staff trained to deal with accidents? If your child is hurt at nursery you want to be sure they are well looked after by a trained first aider until they can receive proper medical attention.
