Our Managers and Practitioners attend regular courses and refreshers externally or internally, to support their continued professional development, and remain fully up to date with any regulatory requirements set out by Ofsted.  We have shared those qualifications above which we feel every prospective parent or attending family would want to know about (it would be impossible to list them all!).  All of our practitioners and staff have full enhanced DBS certificates and are joined on the update service, and daily they sign to confirm they can work with children under the ‘disqualification by association’ and ‘Fit to work’ clauses laid out by Ofsted under good practice guides.

 

Stephen and Emma Blelloch are the owners of Orangutans Day Care Nursery and Emma works as the Nursery Manager on a full-time basis.

 

We believe in consistency for our children and parents, which is why 80% of our staff work on a full-time basis working 40+ hours each week, to support our key worker system.’

Policy statement

At Orangutans Day Care Nursery, staff members are able to take action to apply first aid treatment in the event of an accident involving a child or adult. 100% of staff currently hold paediatric first aid certificates. The first aid qualification includes first aid training for infants and young children. All Paediatric First Aid training is Ofsted/ Local Authority Approved.

Procedures

In addition to the first aid equipment (Defibrillator and First Aid treatments), the nursery provides disposable plastic aprons, disposable gloves, and an ear thermometer.

  • The first aid box is easily accessible to adults and is kept out of the reach of children.
  • In addition to traditional methods of first aid, we also hold a defibrillator on site accessible for use.
  • All medication, prescribed and non-prescribed, is kept of out of the reach of children.
  • At the time of each child’s admission to the nursery, parents’ written permission for obtaining emergency medical advice or treatment is sought.
