As children develop physically, particularly in the early stages of walking, accidents can occasionally happen. In this event, the staff are trained in first aid. If your child has an accident at the nursery, you will be informed upon collection and asked to sign an accident form. In the event of a bump to the head, you will be informed immediately by telephone. Your child will be monitored and, in most cases, will be able to continue with their day as normal.

In the event of an accident causing concern, you will be asked to collect your child and a visit to your GP recommended. Should your child have an accident that requires further medical support, you will be contacted immediately and any necessary action taken. In extreme cases, this could involve calling for the support of paramedics.
