POLICIES OF EPMC

Child Protection
* All EPMC staff are Disclosure Scotland checked.
* The protection of the child is our first priority.
* We do not allow any other adults into the crèche other than the parents of the children in our care.
* Children will only be released from the crèche into the care of their parents or another individual named by the parent.
Behaviour Policy
* Any child, who is excessively disruptive and causing distress to others, will have to be collected by their parents.
* EPMC will return to their parents any child who is distressed if all efforts to comfort and console have failed.
* EPMC do not use any form of physical or mental punishment, nor is it threatened. In any case of misbehaviour, it is made clear to the child/ren in question that it is the behaviour and not the child/ren, which is unwelcome.
Equal Opportunities Policy
* EPMC staff actively promotes equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice for all children.
Health and Safety Policy

* We promote the good health of all who attend the crèche and we reserve the right to exclude any child who, in our opinion, appears unwell.
* Staff are informed and kept up to date with hygiene procedures.
* The safety of children is paramount. All children will be supervised by adults at all times and will always be within sight of an adult.
* EPMC has a policy regarding the administration of medicines and this will be made clear to each parent on arrival to the crèche.
