Welcome!!!!!

Merton Pre-School is a friendly Pre-School with an excellent reputation. We welcome new families to come and visit us at any time during a session as we like to feel that you are seeing a true picture.

We aim to provide high-quality care and education for Pre-school children (from 2 years old till they go to school) in a fun, stimulating and caring environment. The staff work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop to their full potential. We also aim to add to the life and well-being of the local community and offer children and their parents a service which promotes equality and values diversity.

In order to get your child's name on the waiting list; please apply by filling out an application form on the contact us page.  We a have a transition day for all children who have applied to the Pre-School in July.   

 

We are currently running a waiting list for January (We are full and have closed our books for September due to high numbers of children.)

The Policy of the month:

                             

Policy on First Aid

  • . All staff including Bank staff are 1st aid trained within 1st year of working at the Pre-school.
  • Newly qualified staff who achieved an early years qualification at level 2 or 3 on or after 30 June 2016 also have a paediatric first aid certificate in order to be counted in the adult: child ratios.
  • We always choose a 1st aid provider which has a good reputation and is reputable.
  • We have a 1st aid kit for the Pre-school, one in each garden and 1 for trips.  These are checked at least monthly to ensure it is well stocked.
  •   1st aid boxes are in easy accessible areas for adults but are inaccessible for children.
  • If a child needs emergency care, the ambulance will be called first, then a phone call to the parent.
  • Accidents are recorded on accident sheets and kept in our 1st aid file.  Once per month all 1st aid sheets are audited and any lessons learnt are shared with staff.  These are then filed in a locked cupboard and kept on file for 24 years.
