Advice for families:
Becoming mobile

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we prioritize the safety and well-being of all children, including those who are mobile and exploring their environment. We take proactive measures to create a safe and secure nursery environment that promotes their curiosity and development.

To ensure the safety of mobile babies, we conduct daily risk assessments of all areas within the nursery. This includes carefully examining equipment, toys, and the general layout of the room to identify and mitigate any potential risks or hazards. By conducting these assessments regularly, we can promptly address any safety concerns and maintain a secure environment for your baby to explore and play.

Hygiene is also a top priority in our nursery. We maintain strict cleanliness standards to provide a healthy and safe environment for all children. All areas within the nursery are thoroughly cleaned, ensuring that surfaces are regularly sanitized and free from potential contaminants.

For areas where babies may crawl, we take additional precautions. We understand that outdoor shoes may introduce dirt and germs into these areas. Therefore, we request that shoe covers be worn or that outdoor shoes are removed to minimize any potential risks to your baby’s health and hygiene.

By implementing these measures, we aim to create a nurturing and safe space where your mobile baby can freely explore, develop their motor skills, and engage with their surroundings.

At Venn Boulevard Nursery, we are committed to providing a secure and clean environment for all children.
