minimum of 50% of staff are trained in Pediatric
First Aid and all staff have knowledge of
basic First Aid.

encourage parental input and suggestions

part of the Up a Daisy philosophy.
If there is an issue of challenging behavior
being shown by your child, which is upsetting
to themselves, staff or other children it
is our policy to discuss this with the parents
or guardians and agree an approach to deal
with it the same. It is not the practice
to ask parents to remove their children.
