Giving your Child the best Start in Life

Security Policies That Keep Your Children Safe

At Phoenix Park Nursery, we take the security of your child very seriously, which is why we operate a strict policy that ensures the safety of all our children and staff. The policy is as follows:

  • We have a stringent set of security procedures in place so that no one is allowed free access into the nursery.
  • Main entrances are secured at all times, and visitors can enter the nursery only when they have the express permission of a senior member of staff.
  • All visitors are asked to provide formal identification and must sign the visitors’ book before an experienced member of staff escorts them into the nursery.
  • All staff are carefully vetted during the interview process, and everyone undergoes rigorous enhanced DBS checks. All references are followed up and DBSs are reviewed regularly.
  • As part of their continuing professional development, all staff must attend courses to keep their skills up to date, including risk assessment, health and safety, and first aid training.
  • Fences and gates are always fully secured.
  • Play equipment, both inside and outside, is checked regularly.
  • Daily registers are completed so that there is a full record of when children arrive and leave the nursery.

Parents and carers also play an important part in our security procedures:

  • We ask for passport photographs of anyone who is authorised to collect your child on your behalf. These are retained for our records.
  • Strict security measures are in place if you or your nominated person are unable to collect your child.


All policies and procedures regarding security are available for parents to view at any time. As a parent, you can have complete confidence and peace of mind in knowing that your child is safe and sound at Phoenix Park Nursery.
