Child Protection & Safeguarding 

At Wellies Day Nursery, your child's safety & wellbeing is important to us. 
 
“Safeguarding includes the responsible use of all electronic devices with imaging, recording and sharing capabilities. This encompasses mobile phones, cameras, tablets, smartwatches and other electronic devices. Our commitment to safeguarding children includes obtaining parental consent for capturing visual or audio content, securely storing and sharing such content, reporting concerns, and addressing allegations against staff as outlined in our policies and procedures. Team members are not permitted to take electronic devices belonging to the setting home.
