At Jack and Jill's we have a number of policies in place and we have provided a summary of our main policies here. If you would like to see the full version of a given policy or policies, please do contact us.
At our pre-school we operate an open door policy. Members of staff and/or committee are always here for a chat, to offer help, support, guidance and answer any questions you may have. Alternatively you can contact the manager or the chairperson directly via our email.
Pre-school reserves the right to exclude any child should they not be considered not well enough to attend, or if they are suffering from a contagious illness. Whilst we do have a realistic attitude towards your needs as a parent, we do request that if your child is unwell you do refrain from bringing them to pre-school. We may agree to administer medication as part of maintaining their health and well-being or when recovering from an illness. The management team would review each child’s case independently to see whether this would be possible.
In many cases, it is possible for children’s GPs to prescribe medicine that can be taken at home in the morning and evening. As far as possible, administering medicines will only be done where it would be detrimental to the child’s health if not given at pre-school.
Should a child require medical treatment whilst on the premises, we have staff who are fully qualified first-aiders and we reserve the right to administer first aid or alternatively attend the local hospital for further advice or treatment. In the event of an accident occurring, staff will write a full report which is shown to you at the end of the session and will require your signature. The accident report is then kept in your child’s file at pre school.
Behaviour Management Policy
Behaviour is managed by giving praise and encouragement to all of the children. We appreciate that what constitutes as acceptable behaviour differs from parent to parent, however we have clear guidelines within the pre-school and no child is ever shouted at for any misbehaviour. The staff are trained to simply distract the child away from a situation and praise them accordingly.
