Our Policies and Procedures

At Habitat PreSchool we have strict policies and procedures in place to ensure the safety, happiness and well-being of all the children. Parents and carers are more than welcome to pop in and view our policies and procedures at any time, or they are viewable by clicking the links below.

Admissions Policy

It is Habitat's intention to make the PreSchool genuinely accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community.

Behaviour Policy

Habitat believes that children and staff flourish best in an ordered environment, in which everyone knows what is expected of them. Children are free to develop their play and learning without fear of being hurt or hindered by anyone else. Habitat aims to work towards a situation in which children can develop self-discipline and self-esteem in an atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement. We encourage the policy of friendship and understanding.

Complaints Policy

Habitat aims to provide the highest quality education and care for all our children. Habitat aims to offer a welcome to each child and family, and to provide a warm and caring environment which is safe, stimulating, consistent and accessible to learn and develop as they play. Habitat believes children and parents are entitled to expect courtesy and careful attention to their needs and wishes. Our intention is to work in partnership with parents and the community generally. We welcome suggestions on how to improve our setting and will give prompt, serious attention to any concerns about the running of the setting. We anticipate that most concerns will be resolved quickly by an informal approach to the appropriate member of staff. If this does not acheive the desired result, we have a set of procedures for dealing with concerns. We aim to bring all concerns to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties involved.

Safeguarding Policy

Habitat intends to create an environment in which children are safe from abuse and in which any suspicion of abuse or neglect is promptly and appropriately responded to, in line with the Children Act 2004.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

Habitat PreSchool aims to have regard to the Department of Education and Employment Code of Practice on the identification and assessment of Special Education Needs and Disibilities (SEND). We aim to provide an environment in which all children are supported to reach their full potential.
