Our registration and management practices are supported by a comprehensive set of policies and procedures, contained in our Operating Plan, which assure our compliance to the latest Care Standards. These are available on request for inspection by parents / carers at the nursery. Of particular note are the following:
Equal Opportunities Policy

Child protection in the Nursery (excerpt)
Mama Bear’s Day Nursery believes that every child in our care has the right to freedom from abuse.
The fundamental responsibility of the nursery is to ensure the welfare and protection of children in our care. All staff are subject to background checks, including references from previous employers, clearance from the Criminal Records Bureau and Ofsted.
Our nursery staff believe in the strong promotion of children’s good behaviour through the acknowledgement and praise of positive, considerate and caring attitudes and actions. Staff encourage self-discipline, consideration and respect for others and for the property, facilities and surroundings of the nursery setting. We promote these values by treating children with respect and through leading by example. Staff act in a caring and considerate manner towards each other, and it is considered that in this way children will develop a positive attitude for the future and promote their independence.
