As coming to the 1st Place crèche is often the first time a child has spent time away from their parents, we ask that you try to bring them to one of our Stay and Play sessions during the weeks before your course or training starts, so they become familiar with the crèche room and our staff.
We will always talk to your child and explain where you are, what you are doing and when you will be back. It is really important to us that the time spent in crèche is a happy experience for your child.
1st Place crèche workers observe the children in our care in order to feedback to you about what they have been doing and to help us plan for future sessions.
We complete an Evaluation Form for each session in order to record and review what took place and improve our service. You are welcome to add your comments. Please see staff at the end of the session.
All 1st Place provision operates within Government legislation relating to childcare, and our staff have a duty of care to all children. If we have any concerns about the welfare of a child we must record and discuss this with their parent and will refer to other agencies for advice if necessary. Please see the 1st Place Safeguarding Policy for further information.
The 1st Place crèche service was established in 2005. Our skilled Early Education staff have worked successfully with young mums, children with special needs, families with English as a second language and children who have never before separated from their parents.
