We aim to promote an open partnership with parents and carers, involving them in our activities and sharing with them their own and our observations and records of their child’s progress and development.
Dino Kids are committed to ensuring that parents have the opportunity to play an active role in their children’s progress. There is a written reports per term and individual parent/teacher conferences are held once a term for discussion of each child’s development and academic progress. In addition to these scheduled meetings, teachers are always available to discuss parents’ concerns or answer any queries. Parents simply need to contact the Nursery to arrange a mutually convenient appointment time.
Parents are regularly invited to events such as concerts, Annual Day and Sports Day, and are also welcomed into their children’s classrooms to read stories, share special interests or participate in projects. There is a regular newsletter to keep parents informed of news and events.

Dino Kids has a duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of all users and employees as well as a duty of care. In addition to this the prevention and control of infection is essential in helping to establish a safe and secure environment in which children can learn and develop through play.
Viruses and infections can be easily passed from person to person by breathing in air containing the virus which is produced when an infected person talks, coughs or sneezes. It can also spread through hand/face contact after touching a person or surface contaminated with viruses.
The best way to prevent a virus or infection from moving around the nursery environment is to maintain high hygiene standards in the nursery. To do this we will follow the guidance below:
We at Dino Kids encourage out-of-school activities and visits of an educational nature. There are many benefits to the pupils and staff who participate in these and the overall education is enriched as a result.
These types of visit are undertaken termly in support of particular aspects of the curriculum or for wider enrichment. Locations will include museums, the zoo, parks, farms, wildlife centres, farms etc. For every such trip we would have carried out the planning process including Risk Assessments.
Parents are encouraged to volunteer to accompany them during such trips. Our parents often play an important supervisory role on school sponsored field trips. We always plan so that we can maintain a minimum of one Supervisor to 8 kids. All forthcoming tours will be notified to parents/guardians well in advance.
We welcome ideas and suggestions from parents/guardians on suitable day trips for the children.
There will be no overnight field trips.
At Dino Kids we aim to
Corporal punishment is not permitted
Each child is different, so it is important that the cause of the behaviour is investigated and plans made to meet individual needs.
A wide range of rewards are used to reinforce positive behaviour. These can include:
At Dino Kids we understand that rewards can be more effective than punishment in motivating pupils and we make every effort to remember this on a daily basis in our dealings with pupils and in our marking policy.
The School is committed to promoting and rewarding good behaviour
Incentive stickers are available for everyone. In addition, each class teacher gives verbal or written praise as often as possible.
Children are encouraged to display their achievements in and out of school and in class and through photographic evidence and work displayed around the school.
Most children respond to this positive approach where their efforts are seen to be valued, and make considerable efforts to improve their work, and, where necessary, their behaviour.
In our nursery a strong focus is placed on hygiene issues, children are taught to cough in the crook of their arm and are let outside to play daily where the risk of contamination is significantly lower than indoors. During infection periods, contact between children playing indoors is limited.
These precautions are taken to reduce the risk of airborne contamination. Hands are washed regularly and the nappy changing area is cleaned immediately after use. Disposable wipers are used to avoid transmitting respiratory infections and viruses.
Staff are instructed to wash visibly dirty hands after using the bathroom or helping a child to use it; after being outdoors; after nappy changes, before eating and handling food, and after blowing the nose or helping a child to blow their nose. Dry hands are safe hands and paper should always be used when drying since it is the most hygienic option.
Please refer to the above policy about the exclusion of children who are ill or infectious which is discussed with parents. This includes a procedure for contacting parents or another adult designated by the parent if a child becomes ill while in daycare.
On the surface, this advice looks quite straightforward and sensible. I’m sure almost all of us would agree that good hygiene routines and practice is essential in any nursery, indoors or out. Soap and running water is best. It’s natural and it’s effective when hands are washed carefully and properly.
At Dino Kids to reduce the risk of infections we:
It is a fact that children will get ill. By following the guidelines in this policy it reduces unnecessary exposure to illnesses and ensures infections are managed effectively creating a happy and healthy Nursery for all.
If at any time there are any infectious diseases present at the Nursery this will be clearly displayed at the entrance to the room where the infection has occurred.
Should your child become ill they should only return to Nursery when your child is over any symptoms in accordance with the guidelines shown in this policy leaflet and are well enough to do so.
A decision is then taken based upon the symptoms including any visible signs and the child’s body temperature as to whether you are immediately informed or whether continued monitoring of the child should occur.
Should a child’s condition deteriorate you will be contacted by a member of the team and actions will be agreed. This could include administering of medicines or collection of the child in more serious cases or if more acute symptoms are present (example – vomiting or diarrhoea).
Exclusion for the following
If you or your child has been at the Nursery when one of the above infections is present we advise you to see your Doctor to check if you are immune and seek their professional medical advice.
As a responsible child care provider we recommend that all children follow the ‘Routine childhood immunisation programme’.This reduces the risk of exposure to children in our care of infectious diseases.
